Alhama de Murcia

Alhama de Murcia is a small town of about 19,000 and is famous for its Roman baths. The Museo Arqueologico Los Baños is the name of the museum that shows the remains of the Roman baths, which were famous during Roman times. When the Moors came, they also enjoyed the baths. Later the Christians did not take baths, as it was not their custom, so the baths were abandoned and fell into disrepair until the museum restored it. There were separate baths for men and women.
