Sardis Bath complex

Sardis Bath complex

The gymnasium-bath house complex covered 23.000 square metres. It’s built in the “Imperial Style”, implying that it is symmetrical along one axis, with at one end a central hot house (caldarium). It is supposed to have been completed in the middle of the second century AD . It has been repaired and modified through the following centuries, until it was abandoned following the Sassanid invasion in 616.

This is a part where the cool area would be (the hot part to the left of us). Nothing is visible of all that, although a lot seems to remain waiting for excavation. To the right we might enter the central hall once again.
