Today, the Baths of Caracalla are in ruin, but they once housed art galleries, libraries, brothels, and even gym halls. The baths themselves included an area for steam bathing, one for cooling, and a pool to take bathe in cool water. These Roman baths could accommodate up to 2000 people at the same time.

The Baths of Caracalla were opened to the public in the year 217 and they were functional until the year 547 when the Goths ruined the aqueducts serving them. A collection of ancient sculptures of the Farnese family was discovered at this Rome archaeological site.
