Hamam Omeriye

The Hamam Omeriye (Turkish) baths were built in the 16th century by Lala Mustafa Pasha as a gift to the city, with the bath complex dedicated to the Caliph Omer, giving the area its name of ‘Omeriye’.

After a long period of closure, the baths were once again restored to their original glory, earning them the ‘Europa Nostra’ award in 2005, and are open to the public for steam baths and other treatments.

As is typical with Ottoman baths, there are three main areas: the changing and resting room that leads to the warm and hot chambers via an intermediate tepid area. In ancient times, exposure to hot and humid conditions was a prized remedy for general health and formed part of a cleansing ritual.
