While the archaeologist do not know for sure, it is suspected that this building once served as a type of sauna. They draw this conclusion due to the low door that would require anyone coming in to crawl (also keeping hot air in)


Guests visiting the site will be able to go inside the Steam Bath and get a sense of how warm it was. Otherwise, you will be able to see the small vents and other features from the outside.
