The Roman Baths of Fordongianus are an important archaeological site in Sardinia. There are still present springs from which gush waters reach the temperature of 54 C. The ancient urban center is already mentioned by the geographer Claudius Ptolemy in his Geography (around 170 AD) under the name of Aquae Ypsitanae and subsequently as Trajan's Forum, the name assigned during the rule of the Emperor Trajan. The complex consists of two plants: a native plant focused on natatio, which exploited the springs of hot water, and another to artificial heating consists of several environments. On the basis of the adopted architectural techniques they are believed to have been built respectively in the first and third century A.D.
