I don't know whether these baths are really hidden... They are only two minutes walk from the cathedral and equally as interesting. We were the only people there, having just walked around a crammed cathedral. It costs two euros to walk around, which I consider worth it... The baths are peaceful and different, and an interesting view of a different... More

It was worth 2 euro to tour this small space with lots of history. The views of the cathedral from the top of the baths were nice as well.

2 € for adults, 1€ child (my son is 12) the place is beautiful., it is a short tour and the only thing you have to guide yourself is a brochure you get at the entrance that shows where things were placed back in time, like cold room, steam room, changing rooms etc. it is completely made of stone and...

It doesn't take very long to look around the baths and is cheap to enter. The baths are packed with beautiful photo opportunities. Worth a quick look around.

A stunning piece of architecture, you walk through history, with the various rooms, were perfectly intact. Well worth the money for entry. However, if you come during Temps de Flors, entry is free, however, the queues are enormous, particularly as artist adorn each "room".

Although we were wondering to visit the baths inside, we were not disappointed. The visit is really short, not much than half an hour. But you will be astonished how the baths are like a real medieval SPA center - dressing premises, cold & warm rooms, "sauna" :) and a heating system. Additionally pay some attention on the columns in... More

Interesting to walk round the ancient Arab Baths. We expected them to be tiled but the interior is very plain.

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
