Terme di Diocleziano

The Terme di Diocleziano were the largest thermal baths in the city, measuring 376 × 361 m and with room for up to 3000 guests. It was allegedly built by 40,000 slaves from 298-306.

After the Goths destroyed the Roman aqueducts in 537, the baths fell into disrepair and served as a quarry. The Tepidarium and the Hall of the Frigidarium were used by Michelangelo to build the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli e Martiri.

Today it belongs to the Museo Nazionale Romano, where numerous Roman statues are exhibited.
