This is a small tour taking no kore than 15/20 minutes. Excellent preservation on the roof tiles and the old baths themselves. Excellent introduction from the gentleman who welcomes you. Visit the convent after for a full tour of the place.

Free access to baths and adjacent convent. Not much interpretation so a bit disappointing. Convent cloister is attractive.

There is not too much to see here, but what there is is fascinating and well displayed. A light show and recoding guides through the various parts of the baths. Over a thousand year old sauna: impressive.
