View a large structure located along the Pilgrims' Path that leads up to the Martyrium.

Originally the excavators thought that this was a bathhouse, but because it lacked a palestra (exercise area) and because they found a number of religious objects in it, they decided that here pilgrims could purify themselves before ascending to the Martyrium.
