Virtual tour of the Bath House of the Winds, the only surviving hammam in Athens!
The Bath House of the winds is the only public bath of Athens surviving at the present days. It dates from the first period of Turkish rule (1453 – 1669) and stands near the Roman forum and the Tower of the Winds. It functioned as a bathhouse until 1956, and is now the property of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
BONUS! An interactive trip in the evolution of bath structures through the years, employing pertinent documents and illustrations.
