Owner description: Tenth century baths that are the only existing ruins of the Arab city of Medina Mayurqa.
Reviewed 19 May 2014

While tucked away down a number of narrow winding streets the pedestrian route to the Arab Baths is very well signposted. The entrance charge of 2 euros 50 is very modest indeed. There may not be a lot to see but the plants are well maintained and there are plenty of chairs for people to sit on and soak up the atmosphere. There were numerous birds in the garden, one of which made a very loud chattering noise. While we did see it we have no idea what type of bird it was. The garden also contains a number of citrus trees and one particular lemon tree was positively groaning under the weight of its fruit. We would have loved to have picked a lemon and taken it away with us but we didn't. The gardens are well recommended if you have at least half an hour or so to spare.

If you are from a country in the world without "old" then you will probably enjoy this small place. However compared with all of the old historic treasures of Europe this is very minor, which makes the 3 Euro entrance price seem expensive. It is over a 1000 years old so needs to be preserved. Set in the lovely old part of Palma.

You'll take less than one hour to visit the arabian baths in PAlma, but seen that visit them is very cheap I think you should go.
The garden in the terrace is beautiful and the small ancient rooms very suggestive.
I really appreciate them.

Stumbled upon the baths during my last visit. Entry is reasonable and there is a lovely little garden you can relax in. It was very quiet and a nice change from the busy city centre.

Tucked away in a marry alley in the old town of Palma, this is well worth a visit. It's tranquil and peaceful, a hop back into history and times gone by.
