Turkish Bath

Located on Dikeosinis Street. The Ottoman Government Office which was used as a Court exists today across from this building. The Turkish Bath, surrounded by a fence, has a sign stating that the building was built in the 16th century. Machiel Kiel indicates that the building collapsed in 1976 (Kiel, 1996, p.165) and can no longer be entered. As far as can be discerned, the wall surrounded a partially enclosed bathing area under a central dome and a square, relaxing environment. From the signs on the front of the building, it can be understood that the cooling part of the Hamam has collapsed. The Turkish Bath which is made of rubble stone, should be restored. The existence of this second Turkish Bath is mentioned by Evliya Çelebi (V, 1966, pp.395-396).
