We walked round and round in circles trying to find this building in spite of our hotel showing us on a map where it was, but it simply wasn't sign-posted well enough. Interesting... read more

Tucked down a side road near the Cathedral, this place is a great example of old Baths. Well worth the 2 euro entry fee.

Not sure what I was expecting but this was a Roman design and I would have like more information around. Still very interesting and the construction was a marvel. Apart from that, what have the Romans ever done for us? (That last was for Monty Python fans!)

We walked round and round in circles trying to find this building in spite of our hotel showing us on a map where it was, but it simply wasn't sign-posted well enough. Interesting to wander around, since I've been in Turkish baths I could easily imagine how they worked, not sure if others could though in spite of the descriptions.... More

I really enjoy wandering through the Arab baths. You could probably imagine taking a bath they're dipping into the hot water in the cold water. Looks like it's been excavated because it's below ground level. Such an interesting stop on your tour around Gerona

Pay attention to the explanation of this quite complex and important social space. The separate areas--the cold, the temperate, the hot--are each part of an overall experience. Makes you think any what life must have been like on multiple fronts. It would be easy not to "get" this spot and that would be a loss.

Well there isn´t much to see inside. You get to see the old baths and that´s it. If you have a lot of extra money and time then probably but if no then better roam around the area and eat a gelato nearby.

An old bathing building that is pretty well maintained through time... and let's you easily understand the layout and mechanism of such building that were used throughout Europe. Expect about 15 minutes in this place. There are no picture restrictions and, from the rooftop walkway, you have great views of the start of the wall and its gardens. As it... More

There is really very little to see here. It is not presented in any coherent fashion. Total waste of money.

This is one of the main attractions of Girona. The old town has plenty of old churches and important buildings. I visited the city during Girona Temp de Flors, a very impressive flower festival in May. So I am not sure if this building is open the rest of the year. It is very well kept and you feel like...

Very pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the baths and grounds are. Fascinating history. Great photo ops. Don’t miss it. Watch out for early, midday closing time.
