Relaxing in 54ºC

Moulya Yacoub, Morocco

Located in some of the greenest mountain hills of Morocco, the hot springs at Moulay Yacoub offer relaxation at 54ºC. The water pumped up from 1500 below ground us according to local belief good for treating both skin irritation and rheumatism.
Not only is the scenery beautiful, the village is also a nice little place, feeling quite bit like a resort. The clear majority of visitors here are Moroccans, but the odd foreigner can also be spotted.
Services are provided for in two separate structures. The public hammam is cheap and not terribly clean. The much more expensive Hot Springs medical centre have jacuzzis and pools open to the general public.
