“Don´t miss out The Arab Baths when in Ronda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The arab Baths are a Little out of the way and a little overseen by people visiting Ronda, but the walk down to the baths is worth every step ( It can be a little hard for people with walking difficulties to get down there though) There is a small fee to se the baths (monday free adm.). The best way to get to the baths is to cross Puente Nueva from the center of Ronda and walk down the narrow streets to the Arab Baths and go back to the center crossing the old bridge from where there is a beautiful view to el Tajo and the New Bridge.

“A nice bit of history.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I really liked this partially reconstructed bath. You can appreciate the ideas that went into the building of the site and the film was excellent. The music in the film is awesome too but the man at the admission said it isn't for sale. Another nice thing about the site is that it gets you down to the two other bridges and the gate that leads up to the old town.

“Worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Well preserved, small venue. It is not a huge site, so it only takes a short while to walk around them but you can get the feel of how it must have been when it was built. When we were here the visual for their display was not working, just the audio so we were only charged €2 each for entry. We drove down to the site, it is not well marked from the main road, but a quick look on the map and hey presto. From these "baths" it is a quick walk up some steps to see some more fantastic architecture and historical buildings / place of interest.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Although the complex isn't huge it's well maintained and not too expensive to visit. A lot of the original architecture is still in place and quite beautiful and there's a video which shows every few minutes which really helps to fill in the blanks.
On our trip we also visited the baths at Cordoba and these were far more impressive, so I'd recommend you take a walk down and see them.
