The bath is very relaxing accompanied by a massage. There are different types of massage. With the bath comes arabic tea. You only need bath cloothing, all other Neede for batting are available.

This is worth stepping into if you are passing by (or have a particular interest). It gives an idea of how nice the baths would have been.

We visited the Bañuelo, which are the Arab Baths of the city. There are several rooms there. What I liked were the ceilings with eight-sided stars that acted like skylights for the rooms. They were scattered in a pattern on the domes of the rooms.

El Banuelo is an interesting visit. You do not need more than 15 minutes to visit it, but is nice whenever is one of the Albaycin Neighborhood attraction.

When you go to the Carrera del Darro, don't forget to check the little door on the left side. It's free to enter and you'll be led to an ancient arab bath, the only one of the city to have survived the Reconquista. It will enable you to take shade while the AUgust sun is pounding outside.

El Banuela is a well preserved Arab/Moor bath, set back off the Carrera del Darro - so look out for it as you walk along. You do get a feel for the size and layout as you pass through the various rooms. There is an explanation of the baths, in several languages, as you go in, but that's as far... More

This historic Moorish Baths were built one thousand years ago and were preserved very well. The style seems to have Roman influence. The ceiling are dotted with octogonals and star-shaped skylights~ very beautiful. This is a place of historic interest, Free admission. Be careful! It is accessed through a small gate. Easy to miss when walking by.

Free entrance and a good general view of what the baths were. Historically interesting but not a piece of art to remember

It is not easy to find, but woth looking for it. Free to visit. It is extraordinary glimpse at the lives of the (civilised) people 1000 years ago. And at the bathing ritual that has since been lost.

First of all, it's free. You can't beat that! It's a little easy to miss like others have said. It's right on the corner and has a tiny door. The guy at the door was nice too :-) The baths are interesting for a historical purpose but the place isn't large at all. You can do this in 10-15 minutes.... More
