    The Antonine Baths are a huge Roman bath complex in ancient Carthage. A UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Built from 145 to 165 AD, mostly during the reign of the Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius, the Antonine Baths were among the largest baths to be built in the Roman world and were the largest such complex in North Africa.

    The baths contained a number of rooms and chambers standard to such ancient bath complexes, including the Frigidarium (cold room), Caldarium (hot room), Tepidarium (hot bath).

    Originally it would have had many stories, the remains that can be seen today are mostly from the lower level.

    The ruins of the Antonine Baths are certainly worth exploring and provide a picturesque location, positioned as they are against the backdrop of the ocean.
