Baños Arabes, Ronda

#1 of 21 in Historic Sites in Ronda
Ruin · Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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
