Hammam Saffarin

Fès, Morocco

Hammam Saffarin

The Hammam as-Saffarin (or Saffarin Hammam, Hammam Seffarine, etc.) is a historic hammam (bathhouse) in the medina (old city) of Fes, Morocco. It is located on the southwest side of Place Seffarine, across from the Madrasa Saffarin and south of the Qarawiyyin Mosque.

The hammam dates back to the 14th century during the Marinid period. It was probably originally intended to cater to the local coppersmiths who worked in the boutiques and workshops around Place Seffarine. It is one of many hammams which have survived in the city, thanks in part to the continued popularity of the hammam in Moroccan culture over the centuries and to the present day.
