Baños Arabes, Ronda

4.1
Wander through the remains, passageways, and the underground chambers of Baños Arabes, the best conserved thermal baths from the Moorish times on the Iberian Peninsula. Tucked in at the old Arab quarter of the town, these 13th-century baths were located at the main entrance to the medina next to a mosque, so that the devotees could stop for ritual ablution before praying. The interior remains lit thanks to numerous star-shaped skylights. Take a few minutes to watch a short video and learn more about the layout and function of the baths. Note that this attraction is situated at the bottom of the gorge, so be prepared to take a steep hike back up to the main square. To plan Ronda vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • The guy at the office was very helpful and the charge of €3.50 each was fair. There was a video presentation that explained the venue and it shows in English and Spanish.  more »
  • Glad little museum very small but you get a fiml thrown in and you can see how the baths were used.Take the kids  more »
  • We arrived on a Tuesday and it was free admission. Not sure if that was just the day or if every Tuesday it is free. We really enjoyed the video playing in the "hot room". It was a great...  more »

  • This place is still like the Romans , the water is always clean and cold to the perfect temperature, remember that you are going to a natural bath environment, not and all day thing , you can bring your stuff and have picnics but remember is a sulfur bath, direct contact with nature. Parking area is about 200 meters away and no paved country road. But still great and your sling feel good. Don’t bring gold with you as sulfur reacts with gold and turn them black
  • Nice but doesn't really worth the walk down
  • Interesting historical spot. Note that there are two videos running on a loop inside the baths themselves- one is in Spanish and the other in English, so if you step in and don't understand the video, it's only a 10 minute or so wait until you get the other language.
  • Great little exposition on ancient Arab baths. Excellent video on what they would have been like. Ruins in good condition so that you step in the building where baths were. Worth the hike.
  • Great service when we entered. A very helpful guide who gave the kids a play guide. There is a short video of the history of the place in Spanish and English. Unfortunately the ruins are just that. A 3 min view and its done. But the walk up and down to the centre has the most amazing views.
