Arab baths

Recommended
Rediscovered in 1913 beneath the Palacio de Villardompardo, and unearthed over the course of several campaigns, which were completed in 1984, these baths date from the 11C. Superb restoration work has highlighted their architectural perfection. The first room has a glass floor enabling visitors to view the archaeological remains below. The four rooms - an entrance hall, cold room, warm room and hot room - are connected by horseshoe arches. Light filters delicately through star-shaped skylights, making for a serene atmosphere.
