What I can see

It is located at the western part of the city centre. It was built during the period when the adjacent church of Agii Apostoli was turned into a mosque. Initially, it was a single bath, but later it was converted into a double (for both men and women).

What I can't see

The Turkish name is Pasha hammami. The bath was built by the governor of Thessaloniki, Cezeri Kasim Pasha, who had been appointed by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. It operated until 1981 and was the last traditional bath of Thessaloniki. It was then condemned due to damage from the 1978 earthquake.
