Banys Arabs (Arab Baths), Palma de Mallorca

A unique piece of history is waiting at Banys Arabs (Arab Baths). 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.

  • Yes, it's been 25 years we were here, nothing's changed, hahahaha, you can go here, if you like close so here is, but I would no third time extra to go more in

  • It was a little trip there but worth watching when one is just nearby. Beautiful in a winding alley located on the Cathedral length.

  • There is not so much to see. The video with explanation is not very professionally made and not well understandable. Normally you expect in the rooms and at the objects have some explanation (written or via audio), but this is not the case here. What a difference with the baths in Valencia. Here is still a lot to be done. A nice garden.

  • It's very, very small, but worth it. Unfortunately very little info given on site, but nice to see some of the oldest parts of the city. We went in February and there was hardly anyone else there so we had the garden to ourselves. Intriguing bar/drinks area which was closed unfortunately.
  • Its nice place to relax after city walk. We visited Banys Arabs end of February. Even though no much information about the place, it quite worth to visit. Don't miss this.
  • Wonderful garden with chairs and tables, nice old rooms with a video about how it was. Interesting!
  • 2,5 €. There's a very peaceful and quiet garden (at least in December, when we visited). Not too much information available of the history of the building, but a nice place to visit on a sunny day. There are some tables and benches.
  • Unless you are into history and architecture (which I'm not), there is nothing to see there. The ticket costs €2.5 and for me personally, doesn't worth it. Even if you admire these type of places, I still think it's a bit too much. However, there is a nice (yet small) garden where you can sit and rest a bit (which to you don't have to come to this place to do).
