Public Latrine, Selcuk
(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Built around the 1st century CE, Public Latrine featured upscale facilities, including three marble benches with seats and mosaic floors, where wealthy citizens could visit when nature called. Considered modern for the period, the site used advanced plumbing systems and provided a small pool as well. As toilet paper was not available then, users of the latrine would clean themselves with a moist sponge on a stick. Today you can see the well-preserved remains of this restroom and its 36 toilets, all positioned one next to another in perfect linear fashion.

  • Designs have not changed much over time, they were pretty advanced thinkers back then, and with running water too. 
  • Latrines designed for sharing one of the most important moments of the day, it is certain that support your sit on the bare stone couldn't have been exactly the best especially in the winter months

  • Spacious lounge and quite well preserved in that it is easy to imagine boys (I think women wouldn't be...) in their long robes open back and sitting for hours (!) fixing the problems of the city. Do hemorrhoids?? Insurance... Running water to remove organic debris where to?? But at that time this was a breakthrough.
