Bath (hammam) close to the 3rd gateway of the 3rd precinct

Acrocorinth castle: remains of the hamam close to the third Gate (Google earth).

Parts of an Ottoman bath (hamam) are traced close to the main gate of the third enceinte. Its general layout scheme is though impossible to be architecturally surveyed-measured and drawn, as most of the initial structure is covered by debris.
The remaining dome that covers its surviving rooms can easily be distinguished, under the so called Fetihye cami.
The only distinguishable room of the bath had been formerly architecturally surveyed as an almost square shaped room measuring 3,50x3,40 m., and was part of a bigger construction with other rooms, a study that can not be accomplished, due to the mass of scattered damaged masonry.
