    hammam yalbougha al nasery

    This is another hammam... one of the most famous ones in Syria - and surely the most famous one in Aleppo. The good news is that it has different opening times for women and for men, so everyone can just drop by and visit it. Inside it's truly lavish and "historical", as it dates back to the 15th century. From then until now it has changed and been repaired/rebuilt several times - but the old charm is still there. Some practical info:
    Ladies: Saturday, Monday, Thursday, Wednesday (winter only). 9 am - 5 pm
    Men: Sunday, Tuesday, Friday, Wednesday (summer only) 10 am - 1.30 am
    Entrance is 200 SP, massage 100, rubbing 50, soap 25, loof 15 and drinks 25 (basically 415 SP in total)
