Worth a quick visit, free on Sundays

We visited several arab baths and this is the biggest and best conserved. It is free on Sundays and you can see it very quickly.

It was nice to understand the costumes of people a long time ago. There was not much explanation and the diagrams could be better.

The Bañuelo is part of the Dobla de Oro, a set of buildings with Islamic heritage, you can access 3 of them with a single ticket at 3 euro. The buildings are quite simple and ny themselves are not worth the ticket, but combined they will give you a good insight to the neighborhood and give more meaning to a... More

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.
