Even prior to the Romans' arrival, Bath was known for its hot springs, pouring out approximately 1 170 000 litres of water per day at a temperature of 46.5°C. Britain's new masters established Aquae Sulis as the country's premier "spa town", constructing baths and a temple. The site, now protected by an elegant Victorian building, allows visitors not only to see the baths but also to learn about the ancient city through exhibited archaeological finds and three-dimensional displays.
