Romans took a lot of care of their body and the baths were important buildings in their cities. In Thuburbo Majus you?ll find two main baths: the winter baths and the summer baths, not far from the palestra where they could do some sports. Inside the summer baths you still can see the heating system, some decoration and mosaics, even if the best ones are kept in the Bardo Museum. The last picture shows a latrine or an elegant public toilet
The palestra of Petronii is named after the citizen who paid for its construction. Here romans did sports like wrestling or boxing before going to the baths. The remaining portico is very beautiful
