It is the most imposing and richest ensemble of the archaeological site of Carthage. It consists of the thermal baths proper, located by the sea, not far from ancient port facilities and, in the opposite direction, gardens containing remains dating back to various periods of antiquity.

The thermal baths, considered among the largest in Roman Africa, were commissioned during the reign of Emperor Antoninus in AD 165, after 15 years of work initiated during the reign of Hadrian. The monument stood on three levels and was surmounted by numerous domes. Today, only “islands” remain of this formidable edifice, in particular, the remains of the lower level, reserved for staff and service. However, they do give a glimpse of its grandeur and magnificence. The visit is made easier thanks to the ground signs and elaborate signage.

The same markings allow you to circulate in the second part of the park and to discover, going in the direction opposite to the sea, a Christian chapel of the 7th century, a “scola” or seat of a religious association of the 4th century, the basilica of Dermèche I and the Punic necropolis and to name only the main stations.
