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.

  • This is a great picture to take home of the ultimate conversation pit. I'm glad that traditions have changed. 
  • I was surprised to see public ancient washrooms in the city. If there was a curtain up that evidence would be long gone now. There is a small place in front of where you would sit to wash your hands t...  more »
