Roman Como Baths – The gift of Pliny the Younger

0
The Baths of Roman Como were a Roman thermal complex in the city of Como, in use from the second half of the 1st century AD until the end of the 3rd century AD. The baths were built thanks to a donation by Pliny the Younger, a politician from Como who held various posts in the Roman Empire, including that of praetor and senator, who wanted to give his home town an impressive spa facility. In the area brought to light by the excavations that began in the 1970s, the walls of eight different rooms are visible, some of which are octagonal and others rectangular (probably calidari and frigidari), recalling the architecture of Nero's Domus Aurea.
