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.

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.

I don't exactly remember how much we paid, but is worth to pay a bit to make sure these beautiful Arab baths are kept in good shape. If you love history and appreciate culture, pay for the ticket and enjoy the cool atmosphere and the gorgeous architecture.

A well preserved and presented mini museum. Two spiral metal staircases may put the less mobile off, but you don't have to go up. Guide brochure, included in the price, is quite good.

Well preserved Arab Baths and worth the 2euros and 15-20 minutes to look around. The frigidarium which contains an octagonal pool with pillars and arches is lovely.

We spotted this place on the way to the archaeology museum and thought we'd take a look. You can do the tour in a round 5 minutes but it only costs around 2 euros each so can't complain.

Lovely and according to my children, very much like the fountain that Moaning Myrtle lives in in the Harry Potter series.quite compact, but well worth it and not expensive.

I found it very interesting, but was wishing the pamphlet had a bit more historical information in it, in addition to the cartoons of ancient guys.... Walk slowly and notice the details as it will be over fast!

Like many others said, the Arab Baths are very interesting and worth a visit, but the visit will be a short one!
