In southwestern Spain, near the city of Canos de Meca, the remains of a Roman bath were found. Interestingly, the object was under sand and covers an area of ​​approximately 2.5 acres. So far, two rooms have been extracted from under the sand.

The preserved walls are almost 4 meters high, and the remnants of colored plaster prove that the building was beautifully decorated. According to researchers, the object is dated to the 5th century CE.
