The Roman baths

The public baths in the center were almost completely discovered in 1960. Due to their size and interior,
these baths were part of the city gymnasium. They store the arches of the furnace, the walls, and the floors of the premises.
At the beginning is the apodyterium (undressing room) followed by the tepidarium (sweating room) which has hypocaust bricks under the floor for the passage of hot steam. Then, it is found the frigidarium (room with cold water) and at the end the swimming pool. The floor is made of black and white marble tiles in the shape of a chessboard. In the southwest of the Roman Baths, there is a complex of drainage canals and above it the main road of the Roman period in the north direction.
