Dating to the second century, the so-called "Barbara Baths" (Barbarathermen in German) are the largest Roman bath complex known north of the Alps. The bath complex was reused first as a Medieval castle and then as a seventeenth century Jesuit college. The ruins were designated as part of the "Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St. Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier" UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.

The original imperial phase (2nd century) of the baths is estimated at ca. 565 x 788 ft (172 x 240 m), making them second only to the Baths of Trajan in Rome in terms of size.
