Gortys, the Roman Baths

Gortys, the Roman baths

The Roman baths are on our right, behind a wire fence. We can only see a small part of the baths, as they have not been fully excavated.

The Roman baths or Thermae were a large bathhouse complex with many secondary areas, exercise rooms and Vespasianae (public latrines). The baths are made up of three rooms:

  • the calidarium (hot bath)
  • the tepidarium (warm room)
  • the frigidarium (cold bath)
