Italy is one of the most popular destinations among all lovers of European flavor. Visited by tens of millions of tourists every year, including groups of friends, couples, and families with children who come straight from the Holy Land.
Among the most favorite destinations is the capital city of Rome and other central cities such as Venice and Milan, but there are several places to visit in Italy. These places are slowly becoming more familiar among travelers from Israel, such as the magical island of Sicily where you can enjoy a fun vacation at reasonable prices with plenty of activities for adults and children.
One of the most interesting attractions in Sicily is the ancient baths. This combines history and culture and is considered one of the most important historical sites in Sicily. The ancient baths are traditional bath building that was built between the 1st and 2nd centuries, but during the Byzantine period, a church was built on their ruins that still stand today.
During extensive archaeological excavations, many parts of the thermal building that was used for the baths were discovered, which, contrary to what you would expect from such an ancient building. It is quite centralized and includes an array of rooms connected to each other, including a perigridarium (a large cold pool), mosaic floor, calidrium (a steam room now called a “sauna”), a spa complex, and more.
As for the Byzantine church that currently resides on part of the ruins, it is a church with a unique architectural structure with a large dome placed on top of a square building facing the shore and round on the inside. There is a reference to the unique structure of the church written in old writings.
