It's all been said before. The baths are in the old part of Palma close to the cathedral. There are lots of beautiful narrow streets to explore in the area as well as interesting independent shops. It can be quite tiring wandering about on a hot day so if you are in the area this provides a cool, shady garden... More

This isn't a big attraction but worth visiting to experience a Moorish feature in Palma. Originally a Roman bathhouse, it was taken over by the Moors so still has the underground heating system on show, and lots of columns and pictures explaining the history. The gardens are beautiful and a great place for photography, but there was no running water... More

I know it's only 2.50 EUR but it really isn't worth it at all! It's a tiny place which takes 5-10 minutes to walk around. There is a video which plays in 3 languages in a loop. We waited for the English translation but was so disappointed as you could barely hear it, the sound was so muffled! If you... More

Banos Arabes is not must-see place. It consists of two rooms. There is nothing really interesting there. You can see Arab baths in Almudaina palace.

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
