Hamam Omerye: indulge yourself in Oriental luxury

The concept of Hamam has had a timeless value since its establishment, and continues to be a number one choice, a pole of attraction for people who wish to be healthy and well. From the olden days, Hamams have played a definitive role in the structure of cultures seen as they where used as a meeting place for social gatherings, body and soul purification and relaxation

They also served for practical sanitary needs due to the fact that few homes had the comfort of a bath. Hamams were the first buildings that the Ottoman Turks built in a city as it was an important area used for the everyday life of its inhabitants. Yet, the Turkish baths were not discovered by the Ottomans since they have existed since the Greek and Roman antiquity and the Byzantine Empire

For hundreds of years, the tradition of the Turkish baths was integrated into the multicultural mosaic of Greece and was necessary in the everyday life of its citizens. Then came the logic of modernism and the Western way of life, which gradually erased the memories, values and traditions associated with Hamams
