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.

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.
