When the hustle and bustle of the Jemaa El Fna takes its toll, seek refuge at one of the city's hammams (public baths). A plethora of hammams are available in Marrakech, but some of its most well-known include Les Bains de Marrakech, Hammam Dar El Bacha and traveler favorites like HERITAGE SPA and Hammam Rosa Bonheur.

Hammams can intimidate first-timers. Those expecting a Western spa experience are often taken aback by the openness of the baths and the requirement to remove clothing. However, most past visitors said that their hammam attendants helped put them at ease, adding that the slight discomfort they initially felt was easy to overlook for such a "wonderful" experience.

Hammam hours and fees vary by location, but generally, travelers can expect to pay at least 180 Moroccan dirhams (about $20) per session. Some facilities also include a meal in their hammam rates. The bulk of Marrakech's best hammams are located in the medina.
