These are important ruins of an urban settlement dating from Roman times, and which originally comprised a number of villas and public buildings such as baths, a temple, a forum and an aqueduct.

In addition to private residences, the other remains recovered include parts of a temple (a wall, gallery, fragments of columns, a white marble statue), water complex (a dam and 32 pilasters made of stone blocks, as well as a cistern), the forum (two columns of the Tuscan order, remains of houses and streets with pavements), and particularly a bath house.
This was built of sandstone and reached through a doorway with three arches. The site contains the remains of changing rooms, a room for 'waiting and conversation', an open-air gym, a massage and oil room, latrines and the baths themselves: three rooms for cold, warm and hot baths, as well as a sauna. Part of the heating system has also been uncovered.
