You know that incredibly refreshing feeling that pervades your body after a long, nice, hot shower? Now imagine that feeling multiplied by a hundred. The hammam experience is so deeply rooted in Moroccan life that it’s not even a ritual anymore, it’s more of a social gathering, a little weekly event they all participate in. Moroccan hammams are renowned for their aromas, their gorgeous architecture and their invigorating experiences.
Most rituals follow almost the same steps: sit in an extra-hot steam room, lather your entire body in oil, get scrubbed until you feel like you’re brand new and then get splashed with freezing cold water! It’s one of the top activities in Marrakech and should be on top of your list of things to experience!
