We were lucky to be the only visitors when we arrived, and were given a personal tour by one of the guides. She took us around the baths and patiently explained their history while I translated to my two sons who do not yet speak English. They generously offered to keep our pram behind the counter during our visit. Perfect... More

Made a stop here while wondering around the Plaza Nueva. Up along the riverside sits these old Arab Baths. The entrance is free and going around the first thing you notice is how the building has been kept to its original way. A very nice place to visit if you have 30 mins to spare in your schedule.

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...

The "bath house" is located in Albaycín and is easy to find, thou the outside and entrance just is a door. Its situated just beside river Darro. Fantastic and beautiful building,nice see the old bath house and think back several hundred years that they use this for real. The visit will take a short time because it goes pretty fast... More

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!
