It's nice to see Arab baths, but the facility is very small and you can see it in 10 minutes. The entrance fee of 3 € is a little bit too expensive, because there is a parc of 10 x 10 m and three smaller old chambers within the object. It's nice to see but it should be cheaper.

Part of the pleasure of visiting these ancient Arab baths, a reminder of the Muslim conquest of most of Spain, is the walk through and along Palma's narrow ancient streets. Mind you, the renovators and bijoutifiers have moved into this town but it is still redolent of its history and a walkabout is fascinating. The baths are small now but... More

Unfortunately the ruins of the arabian bathes have not much left. We went there for a afternoon and where a little disappointed on the size and what to see. It is a very beautiful place but in 15 minutes you have seen all. In summertime it is for sure a gem due to the location and the little garden located... More

It's 2.50 euros to enter the baths, and the lovely gardens which are well maintained and provide shade on a hot day. There is a film which tells you the history of the baths and a model to show how they worked. The different styles of columns are interesting to see and with the help of the film it's easy... More

While tucked away down a number of narrow winding streets the pedestrian route to the Arab Baths is very well signposted. The entrance charge of 2 euros 50 is very modest indeed. There may not be a lot to see but the plants are well maintained and there are plenty of chairs for people to sit on and soak up... More

If you are from a country in the world without "old" then you will probably enjoy this small place. However compared with all of the old historic treasures of Europe this is very minor, which makes the 3 Euro entrance price seem expensive. It is over a 1000 years old so needs to be preserved. Set in the lovely old... More

You'll take less than one hour to visit the arabian baths in PAlma, but seen that visit them is very cheap I think you should go. The garden in the terrace is beautiful and the small ancient rooms very suggestive. I really appreciate them.

Stumbled upon the baths during my last visit. Entry is reasonable and there is a lovely little garden you can relax in. It was very quiet and a nice change from the busy city centre.

Tucked away in a marry alley in the old town of Palma, this is well worth a visit. It's tranquil and peaceful, a hop back into history and times gone by.
