Situated in the narrow streets of the medieval quarter of the city is the only remaining Moorish-built building in Palma.
Still intact, the Arab bathhouse one of the few buildings left from the occupation of the Moors. It is a haven of peace and quiet in the otherwise bustling city and definitely worth a visit.
Walk through the lush walled garden and you enter an elegant horseshoe-arched and domed chamber, supported by 12 columns.
You can see the cupola, or dome, has various round apertures to allow the steam to escape as this room was used for hot baths. You will see that there is a double floor through which the hot water and steam traveled. There was also a cold baths room which unfortunately no longer exists. It is thought that these Arab baths formed part of the palace of a noble Moslem.
Visiting times from April to November is from 9.30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and from December to March from 9.30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
