Hidden gem of the city
Feb 2020 • Couples
It is well preserved Hammam. It does not work anymore, but you can visit it free of charge. It seems like it could work again without any difficulty, it is all preserved in a very good condition. Look at the ceilings and domes - they are fascinating!

Nice visit for free

There are another public baths you can visit (1€), and they are still working. These ones are for free, and you can even ask to go to the rooftop (unfortunately, the view is not what I expected). It has been recently renovated and you can read some info about how it was before renovation works.

hidden away and restored
Apr 2018 • Friends
Being told it was excellently restored my expectations had been very high. This hidden away place is best to be visited with a tour guide - and for local standards it is in a good and safe state - but it shows that there is unfortunateley not a lot of money and profession in the city to make the best of such a formally iconic place. The ceilings are nice on a sunny day.

Lovely public bath

This building bears all of the hallmarks of traditional bathing - vaulted ceilings and sunlight coming through the patterned perforated domes.

Nice hidden turkish bath
Apr 2017 • Friends
Free entrance to the Turkish bath: great place to linger and see the inside structure. Fountain in the middle filled with locals. Nice stay and of course, although the colours on the walls has faded, the place is nevertheless pretty. You can walk there and it is surrounded by local shops- one restaurant right outside. The caretaker of the place is a very friendly man who likes to joke around. Great guy!

A beautifully preserved hamam im the center of the old city of Tripoli. The quiet, light and colors is a testimony to a bygone era when this was an escape to the residents of the city

Tripoli's First Mamluke Hammam

A Hammam or bathhouse played a prominent role in the lives of people in the Muslim world for centuries. One could compare them to saunas in Hungary today, the public and private hammams of Istanbul, Aleppo, or Tunis used to fulfill an important role, which was reflected by the number of bathhouses in Oriental cities. Hammams were traditionally located near mosques for prayers to clean themselves and relax; they also played an important role as places for meeting others and developing social relations.

Hammam Ezzedine was the first hammam built in Mamluke Tripoli and remained the largest and most important one in the city. According to an article featured on Archnet.org, Ezzedine's bath follows very closely the pattern and arrangement of Syrian baths. For the practical purpose of saving and keeping heat, this bathhouse, like most hammams, is surrounded by buildings and is hardly visible from the outside; as was also then customary, the facade was kept plain.

Though no longer operational, Hammam Ezzedine in the Hadid district, near the Souk el-Nahhassin and the Khan al-Khayyatin is an impressive historical site that occupies a 745 square metre area and that has undergone extensive restoration.

You can visit this site where there is no entrance fee and there are numerous roll-up banners inside that would guide you regarding its history, architecture, and much more!
