Turkish Hammam Topana

The Turkish Hammam Topana is located in the homonymous district Topana, on the northwestern side of the old town of Chania, at the intersection of Zambeli and Duka streets. The building of the Turkish Hammam Topana is well preserved, despite the subsequent interventions that took place there. It is a building with six large hemispherical cupolas, to which subsequently a floor was added.

The relatively simple and humble external appearance of the building of the Turkish Hammam Topana is a common practice in the construction of the Turkish Baths. The bell-shaped glass “eyes” that adorn the domes are the only source of illumination, except for the northwestern sides, where there are three arched windows.

The Turkish Hammam Topana is now owned by the Ministry of Culture, but remains unused.
