If you visit on a tour given by a knowledgeable local, you will get an understanding of these baths. Yes there is the history, but more importantly, with many people in the area being very poor, these baths provide them with a means of keeping clean. They aren't very big, but then neither is the island! Some of the previous comments are quite frankly inane - talking about them being overgrown and run down like the whole island etc ... What are they expecting to see? Why not stay home safe and cosy in their clean, 'hygienic' houses. Seriously, if you want to chat and mix with the locals, absorb some history both old and new, visit the baths.
They are by the way lovely and hot but not recommended for anyone with heart complaints, nor should you stay in them for over 10 mins.
