These Arab baths are along the cathedral and the castle a must see in Jaén. Restored by the local architect Luis Berges, won the Europa Nostra award in 1984. It is a delightful place full of history that gives the feeling of travelling back in...More

We visited the baths during the recent heatwave so it provided welcome cool refuge from the searing heat outside. The explanatory film was easy to get the gist of how the baths worked even if (like us) your Spanish is rudimentary. It was really interesting,...More

About 15 minutes walk from the cathedral, it's definitely a must see. It's free and a great opportunity to see not only the baths, that are beautiful, but also some exhibitions and the view from the top floor terrace is amazing!

On this our first visit to Jaen we had been to the castle (excellent), the cathedral (stunning), and left the Banos Arabes until our final day. As an EU citizen we were given free access to all floors and easily spent a couple of hours...More

We had no idea about this great monument in Andalusia. I think are the biggest "banos arabes" in Europe, the building has been recently updated.

Although itś the baños arabes that draw people here, there is actually much more to this place. The arab baths are fascinating, but the rest of this palace is really nice and the museum exhibits are very interesting. And all for free.

Well presented and interesting site of the Arabian baths, together with quirky folk-style museum and some art work, with a nice cafeteria with superb views. Best spot in Jaen!

The largest preserved Arab baths are worth the visit in the Cultural Centre. Entry to the whole centre is free and a good part of a morning is required to visit the other parts of the building including religion, childhood, transport and domestic museum pieces....More
