On a recentt visit to Toledo we discovered there were Roman ruins under this fabulous city! I knew there was a Roman Circus outside the city walls but I had no idea you could go underground and learn about the feats of the Roman engineers. It is the site of the Roman Baths (discovered in 1986) and there is an opportunity to see how they arranged to get the water there. You can wander around yourself or follow an informative guided tour. It is marvellous to get such a close look at the building methods with the huge vaulted areas to hold the water. If you speak to the staff they can tell you where to find more sections of the hydraulic system, including a site which is under a nearby shop! Until now I had known Toledo as the city of the Three cultures - Maslem, Jewish and Christian! Now I know more about an earlier culture there, that of the Romans. Highly recommended for people who like delving into history!

The site is free and is well laid out and presented. An information sheet in English is available and this is essential to get the site in context. Definitely worth a visit which will take around 30 minutes.

Roman historian Livy was the first one to wrote about city of Toletum in 16 AD, but archaeologists found evidence tha Romans conquered already existing city, possesed by Iberian tribe of Carpetani, in early second century BC. In first century AD, under Emperor Augustus, city gained status of municipium (city under Roman Law) and notable buildings like villas, temples and circus, made for 15 000 people. Roman layer in the old city is obvious even today with its basement passages, wells, baths and ancient water pipes (some are still working). As new cultures arrived, great buildings went in decay and were used as quarrys for new construction in everchanging city.

Above all, Romans were genius engineers of water systems as aqueducts, therms and baths and best preserved part in Toledo is the one north-east of the Cathedral. Conserved site of Roman baths was discovered in 1986, today hosts Cultural management centre and it is free to visit. It is not a prime target if you visit city only for couple of hours, but worth 10min of visit if you have time. There is ancient Roman water reservoir called Hercules caves nearby (also free entrance).

I took a half day tour from Madrid to Toledo and as I was walking around I stumbled in this place. It was not on my list as it is not a common tourist place, not to mention that it's very hard to find with the narrow streets and street names on the walls. It is hidden in an alley and very easy to miss.

What I loved about this place is that it's FREE and you can walk in with no tour guide. It is small, about big enough to walk around and go below on some locations. These remains are very well reserved, however they are not all complete as they are old.

I would definitively recommend to stop by if you are nearby.

This is not a well set up area of "things to see." There are several streets/alleys that encompass these baths and wells dating back to at least 1200 AD. Many different spots are under restoration; some have signage; at least one set of baths are visible with active running water. Smack in the middle of the Plaza area is a small restaurant with a bit of outdoor seating so that you can watch the buzz of life in the old city.

These underground Roman remains give an idea of how a bath house would have been used in that period. The remains mainly consist of the fuel burning areas so almost nothing decorative aside from a little wall painting but the remains are more extensive that you think from the narrow entrance. The display is done quite well and there is some information available in English if you ask the friendly staff. 10 or 15 minutes will be sufficient.

This was a free entry but not terribly interesting as no signs in English. It only takes a few minutes to walk around the area.

This gives an excellent insight into the Roman history of Toledo. The baths are most 2000 years old. It's a pity that there is no information available in English however.

This is really cool. You get to see how things were done 2000 years ago. The old baths are remarkable. This is a must
