“The old Arab bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

Very well worth a visit. Be there at opening 9.30am if you want to take pictures. The crowds will be a negative. We were there alone, and took all the pics we wanted. When we left, groups were coming in and it would have been impossible to shoot photos. It closes at 2.30 pm.

“A quick--and free--visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Hours are limited and there's not a lot to see, but you can't beat the price (free). Still, it is worth a visit to get a sense of how these baths actually worked. The informational panels are multi-lingual and do a good job explaining what you can't see. Definitely worth a 15-minute visit while walking east along the river from Plaza Nueva.

“Interesting for those who love history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2011

The place is smaller then you would expect and doesn't provide you with the picture of what it looked like when it was functioning, but gives you a nice feeling of getting a glimpse of another time and civilization
