“Arab baths”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

El Banuela is a well preserved Arab/Moor bath, set back off the Carrera del Darro - so look out for it as you walk along. You do get a feel for the size and layout as you pass through the various rooms. There is an explanation of the baths, in several languages, as you go in, but that's as far as it goes. Very much lacking in atmosphere, the wander through was over in minutes. Free entry.

“A beautiful place with historic interest”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This historic Moorish Baths were built one thousand years ago and were preserved very well. The style seems to have Roman influence. The ceiling are dotted with octogonals and star-shaped skylights~ very beautiful.

This is a place of historic interest, Free admission.
Be careful! It is accessed through a small gate. Easy to miss when walking by.

“Old Arab baths”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Free entrance and a good general view of what the baths were. Historically interesting but not a piece of art to remember

“Worth a detour”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

It is not easy to find, but woth looking for it. Free to visit. It is extraordinary glimpse at the lives of the (civilised) people 1000 years ago. And at the bathing ritual that has since been lost.

“Pretty neat”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

First of all, it's free. You can't beat that! It's a little easy to miss like others have said. It's right on the corner and has a tiny door. The guy at the door was nice too :-) The baths are interesting for a historical purpose but the place isn't large at all. You can do this in 10-15 minutes. I'd recommend it if you have time though!
