Hot news from the hammam!
Having a traditional hammam is as much a part of visiting Fez as any other activity. It is also a particularly good way to get rid of all the stress and tension of travel and shopping.
Inside Riad Laaroussa is one off the most beautiful hammams - lovingly restored by Fred Sola. The original domed ceiling has been retained and augmented by rest rooms and a massage centre.
The massage is particularly popular with Riad Laaroussa guests but increasing also with visitors from other guest houses and hotels in and around Fez.
Fred Sola (pictured above) has plenty of reasons to be smiling. Not least of which was the opportunity to take advantage of the presence in Fez of top Australian remedial therapist, Katerina Annels. Kat was happy to oblige and give an intensive workshop and demonstration of remedial therapeutic massage to Fred's talented team.
