Bey Hamami Turkish Baths
The Bey Hamami or Baths of Paradise, were the first Ottoman Turkish baths to be built in Thessaloniki in the year 1444. It consists of a double room with separate sections for men and women. At the time, there was no communication between the two sides. Once inside, you stayed on your side. The sections are symmetrical to each other with a parallel axis. The entrance to the men's section was of course wider and better decorated. It is located on Egnatia Street, while the entrance for women, more simple and small, is on the north side of the building. The rooms of the two parts were built in a traditional way, with the coldest room first, then the warmer room and then the main and hottest room.
