Bathhouse: Caldarium
Bathhouse: Caldarium

The caldarium, from the Latin "calda" which means hot, is hot bath in a bathhouse. The central hypocaust of the bathhouse was directly behind the caldarium, so it was heated first. The temperature here was above 40 degrees with 85 percent humidity. The floors and walls were heated by the same hypocaust. The space is equipped with a tongue vault, a reverse slide. Water droplets created from steam, slide along this wall towards the discharge chute underneath.
