Who knew the Middle Ages had spas! I don't know if they had manicure and pedicure but they had steam, cold and hot water bath and a beautiful building. There is not a huge amount of things to see but it is really worth the €2 entry fee.

This should be on your ‘don’t miss it’ list; it is a lovely place to visit. The first room (changing room) that you enter is elegant with a quiet sort of beauty. The columns surrounding the small pool of water and the light entering from on high give this area a relaxed, even romantic, atmosphere. And no, you’re not drunk... More

You only need 20 minutes or so at this attraction, and it's super cheap to get in. But it's incredible. Just to think that hundreds of years ago, people were taking their baths at this location. If you really just soak up the history for 5 minutes, it's incredible to think about. If you're in Girona, you should definitely check... More

We follow the signs to the Arab Baths .They were built in Romanesque style in the 12th century . This is truly an old town part of town .

Interesting restoration, which explains the operation of the baths very well, Views from the upper walls are good.

Very close to Cathedral and Basilica, so worth a look as admission is only 2 €. Well presented and will only take 10 mins. Many other Roman or Arab baths in Europe to better this, however.

The place is only small but well worth it if you have 15-20 minutes to spare, the name it is a bit deceptive because it was built in the 12th century long after the Arab (Moorish) occupation of Girona had ended, a nice chilled out place which was featured in a Game of Thrones scene.

Serene area. You are provided with a brochure upon entry, but it is really not needed because there is ample information and drawings to guide you through. Dont forget to take the winding metal staircase for a different view.

This attraction does not take too long to view and read the information along the way. It is the old 12th century, and not actually Arab, baths used by the Girona community. They appear to have been used as a cash cow by the King and those he gave a part share of the receipts of the baths. Some parts... More
