Large converted town house containing extensive moorish baths with Roman remains on lower floor. Has numerous historical cultural display rooms with artifacts of daily life from the past showing agricultural and industrial objects of local interest.

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 baths are fascinating and well worth a visit. The museum has many items on display relating to local life over the centuries. We spent a long time here. It also has a roof terrace with great views over the city.

Really impressive remains of Arab baths. Museum of Jaen is also part of the complex and is very informative. Needs a good couple of hours to look around
