El Banuelo, Granada Reviews - Write a Review
Free admission Sunday added something to the visit. It was well worth the walk in the sun because the restoration that has been done was relatively subtle and gave us a real good idea what the old Arab baths might have been like. Somehow you do expect everything to be a little larger, given that it was a main bath house. The spaces were no larger than a lounge room. However, the water heating and underfloor heat distribution were very modern for a thousand years ago. The interactive video sites were also very good to use, because they gave us a better idea of exactly what had been in place.
Awesome place to visit. If you went to Alhambra and visited the Nazarian Palace, near the catacombs you might have spotted a small opening. If you were lucky or with a guide, this had you see a glimpse of the bath system in the palace. Here you can see the whole system in all its glory. From the cold to the fire and walk amongst its walls. Great experience, 5/5
The oldest surviving Arabian public bath house in Granada. Computer graphics in tablets show how baths looked centuries ago. 20 minutes well spent
its a very well preserved baths from the 11 th century. they have recreated the same in 3D and you can see the same in the I pads kept .
Don't miss this wonderfully preserved moorish bath house and herb garden.
