Aquae Roman baths are located on the left bank of the Strei river, some 2 km North of the town of Călan, on DN 66 (respectively E 79). The baths were used by the Romans, their existence being attested by the inscription "GENIO PAGI AQUAENSIS", to be found on a stone from the altar of the church of Streisîngiorgiu. Other inscriptions that were discovered were addressed by ill people to the healing gods Hercules, Aesculapius, Nymph, Mithras. The thermal springs of Aquae were also mentioned on the map Tabula Peutingeriana by a special drawing that pointed to the most important thermal baths. Today, one can still see the Roman pool, dug in rock, with a perimeter of about 94 m, 14.2 m long, 7.5 m wide and 4 m deep. It was fed by three springs on the bottom of the pool. The water was drained through a trough dug into stone. At present, the seven thermo-mineral springs have been captured and an aqua park with several swimming pools has been built in the area.
