Nice cozy surprise!

Not even worth the 2.5 E admission. Go anywhere else. Don't follow the signs. Old run down place that stands out for it not being appropriately prepared for tourist to visit and appreciate. You'll be out of there in 10 minutes, even if you go to the toilet.

The place was hard to find. A small fee is charged before entering. We were surprised to realise that in 10 minutes we had been all around. You need a lot of imagination to figure how the installations were in the old days.The gardens are quite ordinary. It's a peaceful little corner of the town but not wirth the trip.

This is a small ruin, with not really a lot to get excited about. On the plus side, the garden offered quite a bit of shade on a very hot day.

There's not a lot to see - in fact we met some Spanish visitors from Gerona and agreed that the baths in that city are much more spectacular. But, these baths are still interesting and the gardens are very restful. There is little other remaining evidence in Palma of its Muslim heritage - that's why a visit is worth it!

For a very small charge, we found this 'oasis' close to the city centre offering shade and a respite from the normal tourist activities in Palma. The informative video was short enough to get an idea of the history of the place. The gardens are well kept and gave us an hour's rest and relaxation in the middle of the... More

Don't miss this on your visit to Palma, it is a beautiful oasis in the city and a wonderfully preserved building. Fascinating. A short video explains the history of the baths and the gardens are a delight. Small but perfectly formed!

There's not much to see and it'll take you 10 minutes to look around; but it's hundreds of years old and it's amazing it's still here, tucked away and surrounded by tight city streets. Worth a look if your interested in Palmas history

The Muslim baths, nearly 1000 years old, are highly unusual medieval remains in Majorca. Take a trip back in time and get a sense of what the island was like under Muslim rule. Introductory video, room with columns, garden with foliage and exhibits.

A beautiful, peaceful oasis, charming gardens, fascinating architecture and seats to sit and enjoy it. Slightly odd to see a drinks machine in the corner but in fact this is a kindness to hot thirsty tourists who can sit and enjoy a cool drink in wonderful surroundings, well worth a visit
