Banos Arabes, Palma de Mallorca

Historic Walking Area · Hidden Gem · Ruin
A unique piece of history is waiting at Banos Arabes. Check out these baths dated from the 10th century, and they’re virtually all that remain of the Arab city of Medina Mayurqa. Historians believe the baths were once part of a nobleman’s house. The structure is a dome with interior columns and round windows. If you take a close look at the columns, you’ll notice each of them are different in size. Outside, enjoy a moment of peace in the secluded garden. You can even have a picnic lunch here if you bring food and drink. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Banos Arabes by using our Palma de Mallorca trip itinerary maker app.

  • When wandering the streets of Palma’s Old Town, there are a few signs directing to the Banys Arabs (Arab Baths), tucked away from the main busy streets near the cathedral. On arrival, although there.....  more »
  • I have seen Arab Baths all over the world, this is one of the smallest and the most insignificant ever. Skip it. You are right in the middle of Mediterranean Sea. Either way you go you’ll find...  more »
  • A lovely little garden but not a great deal to see. The baths are interesting and the Moorish arches are attractive. Otherwise a little disappointing.  more »
  • Worth popping in to check out the very old baths building. Clearly they get a lot of visitors so the €3 entry fees must add to quite a bit: so it’s a shame they haven’t done more with the garden. It could be beautiful but is a bit tatty.
  • Good place to waste 3 euros per person. It's an interesting place but not 3 euros worth, 1 would be more like it. They have gone to considerable trouble to advertise, now you know why.!!
  • The place is nkce and pretty but it seems way to much to pay 3euros for it. It's still a nice experience if you don't mind the money. In a big group there are better things to see. Not at all a must see :/
  • Three euros to get in, which is about right. A small historic site with a video and some information boards. Worth visiting if you agree in the area.
  • This is such a beautiful,tranquil ancient place. My nephew actually got married here 5 years ago! I frequently revisit when I’m here - it just makes me think ? ...... how could it be possible all those hundreds of years in the past , the Moors had the insight and capability to create such a wonder? So worth a visit if you’re interested in history,architecture and beautiful gardens! Also a fabulous place to sit, take time to reflect and perhaps (if you’re like me?) just allow ten minutes of meditation - eyes closed,breathing in the ambient air filled with amazing floral scents your mind can identify, - how did it all work ,way back when it was functional? and just be at one with yourself in the lazy peaceful aromatic surroundings, hopefully encountering gratitude such places remain for all of us today to freely embrace and enjoy
