It cost 2.25 euro to see a building that has nothing for about 5 mins. There was no info whatsoever. I don't think ta worth the money nor the time to come here.

After quite a number of visits to Granada we FINALLY found the old baths! We honestly thought that they were the Hamman which were so widely advertised around town. They are close to one another so it was a forgivable mistake to make! These are tucked around a corner with almost no signage at all. Free entrance - bravo !... More

This was a really special small spot worthy of seeing. The original Moorish Baths, it was stunning to see how they lived

It is a small historic attraction. But yet it is quite interesting. The iPad 3D simulation of the moorish bathhouse gives an interesting view of the original use and decor of the baths.

A place one definitely should visit in Granada. Wonderful impression and careful restauration of a traditional bath. Beautiful play of light. A must see!

This is only a small site and there's not really a lot to see. It is, however, very nicely maintained and worth a quick visit, as the entrance fee is quite minimal.

You can easily walk past the entrance and as a result the visit is fairly quiet. Not that much to see. The three rooms and little courtyard. But only 2 euros. Troposo says it's free. Little video installation provides some computer graphic info. Ok but not a must do

This structure is, I think, the only remaining bathhouse in the city, and you could tour it very cheaply. We enjoyed seeing the historic structure and imaging what it would have been like in the olden days.

We popped in here as we had a bit of time to kill before going to the train station. The star shaped carved ceilings and the coolness of the rooms is nice but you need a lot of imagination to tell what it would have been like originally as there isn't much else to see.

Ok, it's clear from the reviews on here that expectations will have a big impact on how you experience this astonishing survival, tucked under other buildings at the foot of the Albaicin. The only reason it's still there at all is that it was built over, when any other bañuelo from the time has long since been destroyed. What you... More
