Olearie Papali - Terme di Diocleziano

In the south-west area of the Terme, close to the Basilica of S. Maria degli Angeli we find the papal oil containers. Built to be granaries, Pope Clemente XIII transformed them in huge oil containers in case of famines: each one of them could keepo up to 44.000 liters. After the restoration done for the year 2000 Jubilee they are now open to public as exhibition space.
