Palaestra Interior

The palaestra is hardly used at all now. Instead it is overgrown with wildflowers which fill the field with color every summer morning. I counted at least 10 different species. By noon they are closed up tight against the heat.

columns.]

It's too bad that the palaestra is in such a state of disrepair. In its time it had some lovely amenities. Check out the Palaestra Pool.
