“small and perfectly formed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

2 euros gets you into this tiny little musuem. There's an informative video about the origins of the Arab baths then the remains of the calderium with its domed roof. there is also a wonderful little garden that you can while away the time soaking up the sun and atmosphere. Small but atmospheric.

“Tranquility”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

An interesting little place for 2 euros admittance. Whilst this is a short stop visit the gardens are pretty and peaceful. There are some very uncomfortable chairs available.
I think more could be done to spruce up the gardens but even so it was good to experience.

“Baths are dull as ditchwater but gardens are lovely”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

As per title. Baths are deeply uninteresting but the lush courtyard garden was a delightful place to while away an hour on a windy March Friday. In high season I imagine less so!

“NOT MUCH TO SEE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

2 Euro entry is about right for a visit to a small walled garden and the very ancient moorish showpiece circular room
