Arles

The Roman Baths in Arles France (Les Thermes de Constantin) can be found near the riverside walkway. They were constructed in the 4th century and are open to the public. These Roman baths were an important social gathering venue in ancient Roman society.

Of the once-extensive series of buildings, which resembled a palace, only the Caldarium (warm bath) and parts of the Hypocaust (underfloor heating) and the Tepidarium (warm air room) remain.
