The baths were constructed after the Arab period in the town, but the decoration is really lovely and worth a walk through. There are so many sites in this town that add to the ambiance and this is one of them. We had only about 3 hours in Girona and I wish we had planned a day or even overnight.... More

Visiting this 12th century Turkish baths was one of several opportunities to walk a few steps into the deep past to the city and of Europe. The baths were inspired by Roman baths, and one enters into the frigidarium, with pillars supporting a very nice dome. The next stop is the tepidarium, then the caladium (first room cold water, second... More

Most places of interest in Girona are worthwhile a visit. This little gem is definitely a must. Small but not crowded with visitors. Not even in high season. Takes about 15 min.

Nice little museum with minimal interpretation or signage. Just a printed handout from the guy taking your 2 Euros. Hardly anybody visiting when we were there which was nice. So we have all three Abrahamic faiths represented in one small section of Girona-cool

Something very different and small enough to visit without dozens of people. Very well maintained and interesting and loved the reflections in the pool. Another of Gironas gems. A few reviews that I have read almost pass over this attraction but I am very pleased that I sought it out.

It's small, only 15 minutes or so. Wish there had been more signage and explanations of how the baths were used. Maybe put in a few re-creations of what it might have looked like. Not really worth the time.

A little interesting history in here that gices you a glimpse into Girona as far back as the 12th century (like with the Jewish museum). Only takes 10 mins but is worth the entrance fee.

I am always so happy when I am so pleasantly surprised! I was not expecting much as I had not read anything about these baths but for only 2€, it was worth the short visit. I have visited other baths but what I was most impressed that Girona had been able to keep some of the arab architecture, which I... More

This is a small bath, compared to some others we've seen in Roman ruins, but it's a really nice serene place to visit while in Girona. It's only 4 euros per person and takes maybe 15 minutes to visit, we really enjoyed it.
