Originally part of the 14th-century Church of St George of the Latins, the Büyük Hamam is entered via a low, ornate door, sunk 2m below street level, and today provides a typical Turkish bathhouse soak-and-scrub experience. For the full deal, including a scrub-down with traditional black soap and a pounding massage, come in the hours reserved for 'touristic services'.

Inside is a nail that marks the height reached by the waters of the Pedieos River (Kanlı Dere), which drowned about 3000 Lefkosians in 1330.
