  • There is really not much to see in these baths. I thought it would be more interesting, but it took me about 5 minutes to walk through. There is no explanation and nobody to tell you anything about it...  more »
  • As other people that inside there is almost nothing we had a look around and saw just the first room where you buy the ticket. Inside we could see some white walls and some decorations.  more »

  • Very cool! Owner of local community center was very friendly and helpful with directions, there is a geocache located here (the only one in stone town) if you are in the know. Beautiful old buildings.
  • Take have a step looking at your own. The hamam bath is incredibly beautiful
