Cleopatra's Bath (Spring of Juba, Ain el-Hammam) in the Siwa Oasis, Egypt

Cleopatra's Bath (Spring of Juba)
Also, Ain el-Hammam

The spring is one of many in the area and is located on the path that leads to the Temple of Amun. It is a stone pool fed by natural spring water, and probably the best known pool in the area. Apparently, the pool had was not vary inviting from reports in recent years, but there have been efforts made to improve it.

However, as with all springs in the area, it is wise to consider local customs. People do not bath in these pools in skimpy swimsuits, and in fact, most often remain clothed. Therefore, a good idea if one intents to bath here is to bring a covering garment suitable to the occasion.
