“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

We visited the Bañuelo, which are the Arab Baths of the city. There are several rooms there. What I liked were the ceilings with eight-sided stars that acted like skylights for the rooms. They were scattered in a pattern on the domes of the rooms.

“Part of Albaycin visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

El Banuelo is an interesting visit. You do not need more than 15 minutes to visit it, but is nice whenever is one of the Albaycin Neighborhood attraction.

“Free and amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

When you go to the Carrera del Darro, don't forget to check the little door on the left side. It's free to enter and you'll be led to an ancient arab bath, the only one of the city to have survived the Reconquista. It will enable you to take shade while the AUgust sun is pounding outside.

“Arab baths”
3 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
