What Is A Moroccan Hammam ?

The art of the hammam (steam bath/bathhouse) is an ancient ritual… 

Before being marketed as ‘spas’, hammams were the most popular thermae during the  Roman Empire in the Mediterranean more than 2000 years ago

Similar to a Turkish bath, a public hammam is a steam room where people go to clean themselves. This is usually a weekly ritual and is considered a social activity in villages and towns, with men, women, and children all participating

Baths are separated by gender and many people will spend hours here chatting with friends
