Further information Baths of Diocletian

The magnificent structure of the bath, the largest in Ancient Rome, was built between the years 298 and 306 A.D. As well as holding the traditional pools of water at various temperatures (calidarium, frigidarium and tepidarium), the bath also included a central hall, an open-air swimming pool and many other rooms which were put to various uses. Today, part of the perimeter of the bath is occupied by the Church of Saint Mary of the Angels. Indeed, in 1561 Pope Pius IV decided to change the bath into a basilica with an annexed convent, and commissioned Michelangelo to bring this to fruition. In 1889 the baths became a seat of the National Museum of Ancient Rome and diverse archaeological collections were kept there. The large cloister holds about 400 sculptures displaying the whole range of artistic styles found in Ancient Rome. The galleries of the cloister are dedicated to a permanent exhibition on pre-historic populations and the development of their cultures in Latium in the late Bronze Age and iron age (twelfth to seventh centuries B.C.), with particular reference to Rome.
