Great Hammam: this was built in the Fifteenth Century, but has fallen into disuse and disrepair. UNESCO detailed its "very bad" condition: "stone deterioration, loss of plaster, vegetation growing everywhere. Some cupolas open to the sky, roof completely missing over much of the structure. The sewage system of the shop was routed through the building and this has caused damage to the hypocaust."
