This is a well presented oasis, acting as a reminder of the cultures that have enjoyed all that Palma offers.

Unless you find yourself right around the corner, as we did, the Arab Baths are really not worth the visit. It's tiny, there are no baths, and there are no views.

It all depends on your expectations. The Arab baths, first of all were never baths, but more like a spa - hot and cold rooms with treatments. Often just private like these, they are small. This particular example gives a small window into the life of Palma during the Muslim era, and it is enhanced by the very pretty garden.... More

We decide to find the actual Arabian baths and do . The walk to the, through ancient alley ways turn out to be the best part .We pay our a few euro and go inside. Just see a little square smelly room with a couple of stone jugs. The garden outside was better.

It's a very nice little place with a pleasant tiny garden. It's really nice to sit down for some ten minutes in a shady garden. But there's not too much to see and learn

Very few ruins left but the history of the baths speaks for it shelf. A giude can explain how the buildings were being used and how luxurious they were at the time. There is also a beautifully maintened garden outside where you can sit and relax.

The Arab baths are accessed via a narrow entrance into a garden courtyard off which various rooms open. The gardens are pretty and there is plenty of places to sit. The antiquity of the boathouse is undoubted but there isn't any great explanation of what is what so you have to leave it up to your imagination to interpret what... More

An interesting place to get a sense of history. Very small, even if you sit through a video that explains (Spanish, French, English and German) its history, it won't take more than 30 min to tour the entire place. If it's nice out and you have some time, you can just sit in a garden. (watch out for mosquitos lol)

I wish there were more explicit explanations in each room. There was a movie explaining the baths, but afterwards, we wandered from basically empty room to basically empty room........I would have wanted to learn more.

This is a small place to visit with some lovely pieces of old architecture - it is located in the middle of the town and very reasonable price to get in. It doesn't take long to get around the site, but it is worth a visit.
