I was with my wife wondering in the maze of Medina in Marrakesh, discovering its authenticity and the never-ending beauty of an ancient city in its narrow and winding passages. It is easy to get lost in Medina and sometimes it can lead to further discovery such as finding a modern hammam in the medieval setting. Let me briefly explain what a Moroccan hammam is. Similar to a Turkish bath, these hammams are part of many Moroccans’ daily life. They are a public steam room where people go to clean themselves. This is usually a weekly ritual and is considered a social activity in villages and towns, with men, women, and children all participating.
