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.

Small museum, so it doesn't take long to go through at all and the entrance fee is only 2.25 euros, but definitely a must-see in Granada. It could use some more informative signage but the woman on the front desk when I was there (the afternoon of Mon. October 10th) was very knowledgeable and kindly answered my questions very comprehensively,... More

This old Moorish bath house is well preserved with good interpretive visuals. The ceilings are amazing with their star shaped skylights.

These baths are well worth a visit. They used to be part of the Mosque of the Walnut Tree which has long gone. The baths remain and are pretty much complete (albeit no water!).They were built in the 11th century and are said to be among the oldest and most complete baths in Spain. One of the Granada tourist information... More

This is a very short visit as the baths are small. The entrance fee is like 2 or 3 euros. The ceilings are beautiful, nice to take pictures to the light coming in. Must be spectacular on a rainy day.

definitely humbling seeing how people used bath houses in the past.... great architecture as well, especially after taking a course on art history. Never a dull moment observing the ancient ruins and restricted areas

History comes alive in the El Banuelo. It is in a site that can easily be missed unless you are really looking for it. We were lucky enough to visit on a 'free' day, although the nermal admission fee is quite small. The baths are, or more correctly, would have been, absolutely amazing in their heyday. Today they are not... More

An interesting building through a fairly nondescript door. Small entrance charge despite my guide book saying it was free. Building interior was interesting but look up because the ceilings are lovely with all the little windows which cast light patterns on the floors and walls. Person on the desk also put us on to a traditional house with courtyard which... More
