The Great Hamam of Rhodes

The Great Hamam AND the minaret of Rhodes

                   Located  to Arionos square in the old town of Rhodes.

     Great Hamam  is one of the most important bathhouses in the hole of the Ottoman Empire. It is Known under different  names: Baths of Suleiman ,Mustafa Baths, and     Yeni Hamam, which  means new Baths .

     It is first mentioned in 1558 in a census of existing buildings ordered  by Sultan Seli, who succeeded Suleiman the Magnificent .The first part  of  Great Hamam  was  the men's baths, a severe, square ,symmetrical structure which dominates the square. The women's baths were a later addition ,under Mustafa Pasha ,and detract slightly from the symmetry of the whole. The interior is even more impressive ,especially the men's cold chamber with its huge dome, opulent marble facing and elegant central fountain. The warm areas also have a distinctive atmosphere, and are lit and ventilated by small apertures in the domes .

         The baths were  recently renovated and are now once again open to the public.
