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

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.
