Roman Baths

“The Roman Baths in Évora were built between the II and III centuries. They were discovered by the end of 1987, during the archaeological excavation in the old part of the City Hall building. (…).  

When we talk about roman baths we must understand that they represented an essential role in people’s life. Not only on the hygiene point of view, but also because the public baths were the place for socializing, talking and do business.   

The Roman Baths in the City Hall of Évora have approximately 300 m2, and as all the Roman spas they have three different areas:  Laconicum,  Praefurnium and  Natatio.  The Laconicum, (…) was used for hot and steam baths, and was the room with the highest temperature. In the Praefurnium, (…) one can see the furnace (…), which provided the central heating system for water and air in all the other rooms. The Natatio was a rectangular open air swimming pool, surrounded by porticos.”
