Good place to take a trick photograph in the underground tunnel. Ruins are interesting. Fountain water has warm water coming out of it.

The ruins talk for themselves, showing off their history of medical care in all its facets, eg psychology, health care and recuperation. Don't overlook this site below the old Pergamon.
