Hammam baths

A city, according to the Koran, to be comprehensive needs a hammam for purification from sins and purify the soul.

As the water overflowing the basins and evaporated onto the hot marble, the steam rising up elafrainontas thoughts, purifying the body, quietening the mind.

The hammam has its roots in ancient Greek and Roman times where it was found with the name Thermae. One habit that charmed and spread in many cultures of the Mediterranean basin over time.
