Caesarea’s Public Latrines (the ‘Crapatorium’)

caesarea crapatorium

When strolling through the national park of Caesarea, don’t miss the opportunity to test the Byzantine era Public latrines. Set an exit of Caesarea’s Hippo-stadium after it went out of use, the public latrine was comprised of a row of slabs of stone set above a water channel. People in need would sit on the space between them until they were totally relieved. In front of the feet a small channel of water was designed to hold a few sticks with sponges. They were used for, well, I guess you know what.
