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.

  • Remains of an Arab bath before the reconquista. In a small garden very fresh to rest. The cost is low, if you pass by there worth it. If you are interested in archaeology Park Arabian treasure.

  • Cute, poorly maintained but useful to imagine a past with other cultures that otherwise is not perceived in the city! Worth a stop and at the bottom the price is justified.

  • The architecture of the site is well preserved. It's too bad that there are only few pieces. The outdoor gardens are a place of welcome rest away from the crowds of the historic center

  • Public restrooms! But more importantly this is a very cool place to see the ancient history of Palma. Very well kept and informative
  • The history here is amazing. 10th century Muslim bath house. Lost and rediscovered avout 100 years ago. 2,50 euros to get in. Nice garden, cool tepidarium. Interesting how they were able to make a radient heated floor so long ago.
  • It is amazing to see and to touch what our ancestors have built 10 century's ago, do not expect something where you will stay for more then 10 min.

Where to stay in Palma de Mallorca

To experience the heart of Palma, opt to stay in the the inner ring of La Avinguadas street, where lies the historical city center. The mostly traffic-free district is filled with beautiful island architecture housing boutique hotels, historical restaurants, and lovely plazas, and is only a short walk from the city beach and port. The Santa Catalina neighborhood is another popular option for accommodation as it is well known for its restaurants, daily market, and close proximity to the city's main sites. Just east of the city center is Portixol, a beachside neighborhood that still retains its charm of an old fishing village. For a small town beach atmosphere, stay along Platja de Palma, the beach stretching east of the city center.
