This banuelo though small is compact and full of historical value. There are skylight giving natural light and glow to this place. If you have time (after visiting Alhambra) just drop by and see the talents of yesteryear.

To be honest I was not impressed very much especially because I visited this place after going to a funcioning hamam. Though I am sure for the history lovers and those who are interested in this type of architecture, this a must to visit!

Small but fabulous attraction with well preserved skylights and tablets that give you the view of what was once one of many bathhouses in the Albayzin. Well worth the modest admission, but even better that if you buy the Doble d'oro ticket to the Alhambra, this and other Albayzin historic sites are free admission!

I saw rubble and remains of what once was an Arab bath house. There are tablets that let you see colorized images of what the place was supposed to have looked like in its day but I question whether there I a fair measure of fiction employed. Saw this as part of a three fold exhibit, including an old 16th... More

I've visited a few ancient baths and these are by far the most complete and best preserved. It's just below the Alhambra across the river.

Conveniently located on Carrera del Darro, it can be missed - not very remarkable from outdoors. Rather in ruin inside, it may interest the fan of history and architecte.

We were recommended to visit this site by our tour guide at the Alhambra because it was on the way home. A great little relic of the past in almost pristine condition. The rooms were all intact and the multimedia presentations showed exactly how Abdullah from the 15th century relaxed and cleansed. Not sure how the girls did it!! And... More

Taken in as we passed while walking below the Alhambra in the town. Easy to find and not expensive to go in. Old Arab baths from a thousand years ago.
