What is a Hammam and why do we have one?

In Baza and its surrounding area, the tradition of  bathing has been present for a very long time. There are remains of a Jewish bath and of the Arabic Marzuela bath from the 13th century in the actual town centre. About 20 minutes drive from Baza, you find the internationally renowned Roman thermal springs in Zújar. They were flooded when the reservoir lake Negratin was built but you can enjoy its medicinal waters in a small stone pool and in the new indoor SPA next to the lake’s shore.

A Turkish, Moorish or Arabic bath (Arabic: حمّام, ḥammām‎‎) is the Islamic variant of the Roman bath, steam bath, sauna, or Russian banya, distinguished by a focus on water, as distinct from ambient steam.

When we created our troglodyte Hammam we took into account the different traditions. You will find a hot immersion pool combined with steam and a cold pool to refresh yourself afterwards. The bath is a method of cleansing and relaxation your body and soul. You should alternate between the different temperatures and have a rest from time to time. Our Hammam facilities also include a ladies and a gents changing room with showers, a toilet and the massage room. Please bring your swimsuit and flip-flops, we provide a towel.

If you wish further information, if you have any questions and if you want to book a Hammam session, please contact with our reception.
