  • At the entrance are exposed the opening hours, but there is no shadow of who might allow entry: all barred.

  • The particularity of the site lies in the construction, the "roundabout", which later was transformed into a church. Too bad that everything you might have cognition only from the outside. The gate is closed by a bolt and there's no indication of visiting hours. Another wasted opportunity for tourism.

  • Small building in the heart of the ancient city. Worth the stop by to breathe a pleasant atmosphere Roman/medieval. Sometimes hosts small shows or readings, they buy a special charm

  • From roman baths to catholic church: this place has many things to tell. The touristic guides will lead you through the history of the building and the city.
  • One of the many archaeological sites unknown or forgotten by the citizens themselves. You should appreciate more posts like these.

  • The circular structure actually belonged to the Byzantine Temple, or maybe a Baptistry or place of worship related to functions involving ritual ablutions, while the original building remain short rise and (very interesting central environment and the great apsidal West compartment in opus sectile) for most environments. The alleged angular marble tubs were actually medieval additions (13th century?) for equipping the circular room of religious chapels; Mary Grace Banjo, Claudia Gauthier, the terme della rotonda di Catania, Sicily, 2008. The hotel is an exquisite balanced system of Roman, Byzantine and bassomedioevali, with artistic artifacts (as pictorial architectonic) high invoice.
