    Hammam al-Nasri

    Considered Syria's most beautiful hammam (Arab bath), the 16th century Hammam al-Nasri continues to function to this day. It is distinguishable by the yellow dome and its façade's alternating yellow and black stones. A recent successful restoration has made this hammam most popular, particularly among tourists. It also opens for women twice a week.

    Yalbougha

    There has been a bath on this site for a very long time but the building standing there today is from the 14th century. During the 1980s it was restored by the Ministry of Tourism. It is situated below the citadel, to the southeast. As you approach you will recognise it by its striped facade in black and light yellow.

    The evening Firas and I passed it was open for men so I was surprised I could enter to have a look. I’m glad they let us in because it is a beautiful building and one day I’d like to go here for a bath (and so I did in June 2005).

    Hammam Yalbougha an-Nasry.

    This Hammam is famed for being the best in Syria, and although I can’t verify it because I didn’t visit all the Hammams in Syria, I ensure you that visiting Hammam Yalbougha an-Nasry (although I know it is a bit touristy) was one of the highlights of my visit in Aleppo. Not only because I really enjoyed being scrubbed and massaged, but also because I had the change to see women of all ages having fun, away of the strict rules that dominate their everyday lives. Hammam Yalbougha an-Nasry was constructed in 1491, destroyed and rebuilt several times during the years and finally restored and reopened to the public in the mid 80s. Looking like every typical Mamluk building from the outside, it is marvellous inside. The full package includes the entry, scrubbing and massage and costs 450SP. Open 10-2am, women’s day 10am-5pm on Monday-Thursday and Saturday.

    For men it is open the other days between 10 am – 1.30 am.
