Need to point out, first, that on the day we went, there was no admission charge and it was explained that excavation/renovation work was still in progress, so by now they might be charging admission (so it's best to check ahead) .The guy at the front was very nice, cordial, asking where we were from, etc. and explained a short...

It's probably not the biggest one in Andalucia but it could just be one of the best preserved. It gives a great viewing of what it would have been like.

If you've never seen baths, you should visit this place, but look carefully. The first day, we walked right past the entrance, then we saw what we thought was the entrance, which was closed. If you do the same, go back down & turn right. Look for the tiny sign.

Not a big tourist attraction but worth the short detour to explore these Ancient Baths. Admission is free and it's nice to see something this wonderful without swarms of people. Quiet, beautiful and a wonderful little slice of historical Granada.

Had tripadvisor not existed, we would never had stopped and enter this tiny place en la Carrera del Darro. These old baths are extremely well conserved and so peaceful. It really is amazing to imagine how they were used. A highly recommended visit.

I knew of this spot but it is hard to find, and you must look out for a sign on the building as you walk up the riverside. Free to enter, it is very small and only contains the rooms but no water in baths as they are no longer used.

During our tour of Granada, this was the perfect place to escape the heath! It is one of the best preserved Arab baths! Lovely and charming, one of the must see places in Granada!

Baths from Moorish times, really well preserved. Situated on Carrera del Daro on the right side. The entrance is not very good marked. Entrance is free of charge. This 11th century baths consist of several chambers with ceiling with stars (actually holes for ventilation). On hot summer days is cool place to chill inside or in patio with small fountain.

The Hammam El Banuelo is a short walk up from Plaza Nueva and thanks to a walking tour map (thanks Rick Steves!) we did not miss this very cool and understated 11th century Moorish bath. Entrance is by way of a tiny unassuming courtyard and a small doorway brings you into a series of rooms. Some of the intricate design... More
