Old Bath

The Old Bath is situated in the interior of the Castle, near Antonio Zeno bastion, on Mendoni Street. The Bath has been registered with the 7 November 1997 dated decision of the Greek Ministry of Culture. It is possible that this structure is the Piyale Pasha Bath, which is recorded to be built in Chios in the archive records. The Bath has been constructed according to a plan that assumes a central dome, horizontal heat dissemination and two gender-segregated parts. Although there is a third part left outside of the main structure constructed in the middle of two segregated parts facing one another, the building looks as if it has two segregated parts. Recently an archeological excavation has been conducted in the interior of the Old Bath. Today the bath is closed.
