The abundance of water and springs has always allowed the presence of quite numerous baths in the ancient medinas. These public buildings have played a major role in the daily lives of the inhabitants, and have continued to evolve to this day. In this place the bathers carried out a hygiene of the body and the mind but also allowed themselves, meetings and discussions between the different social classes. Today, the modernization and degradation of the medinas, that of Tlemcen, Nedroma or other cities, threaten this architectural element, whose traces must be transmitted to future generations as a testimony to a civilization. Given its multifunctionality, the hammam deserves a multiple dimensional reading. In this article, we will present an inventory of two existing baths: the Nedroma one dating from the 11th century, and the one of the dyers whose dating is unknown; before moving on to a comparative study of their architectural and spatial characteristics. Indeed, their comparative study allows us to answer a set of hypotheses relating to their dating, but also to grasp the typology and architectural aspect in which they are part: more modest baths, if we compare them with the monumental baths of Turkey or the Middle East.

Keywords: Bath, Hammam, Nedroma, Tlemcen, Typology.
