In this paper, we present the results of archaeological samples conducted in 2010 in the seventeenth-century thermal baths at Termini Imerese. The excavations made it possible to find for the first time some parts of the caldarium of the Roman baths. Some sections of the perimeter wall and the paving of the external ambulatory of the building were identified, as well as a small portion of the narrow internal ambulatory, bordered by a pillared portico that overlooked the circular swimming pool, intended for hot baths, located in the centre of the structure. Some remains of the architectural decoration allow to date the building at the beginning of the first century A.D.
