Bathhouse Wall

Section of the Roman bathhouse wall at Ruínas Romanas de Milreu, just a few kilometers from Faro in Portugal. It’s part of a Roman farmhouse complex.

Managed to get some warmth into my bones in the Autumn/Fall last year with a short trip to Portugal. It was supposed to be a unwind/sunbed/read a book vacation, but after the first couple of days I was crawling up the wall. Fortunately, my family had picked an area with ‘things that might interest you’ (they’ve known me long enough to anticipate my inability to relax for long). Anyway, just up the road from where we were staying was this Roman bath house. Some nice fish mosaics as well as some patterned floors.
