Archaeological Area

the laconicum

...is particularly interesting because it shows the operation of the heating system that allowed hot, dry air baths.

The archaeological area consists of the remains of a Roman bathhouse discovered during restoration work on the monastic complex after World War II

The thermal building consisted of two parallel structures oriented along a northwest/east axis. The first included a gymnasium and an indoor pool (natati), and the second, divided into two levels, extended on the western side of the pool and included the actual thermal spaces.

Located outside the city walls, these baths are the most complete evidence to us of the ancient Thermae of Neapolis.
