We had a little bit of an interesting time finding this place as our gps did not bring us to the direct spot. But we found it eventually. It is near the Roman bridge so if you find that you are very close. There is a video room within the baths that shows about a 10-15 minute presentation that is... More

This is a short stop, but well worth your time, especially if you are a history buff. The site are well preserved. The film that they show is a great introduction to the importance of this place.

You can see it from the road, and if you get here, you've probably walked across Old Bridge and can easily walk across even Older Bridge. New bridge isn't the only bridge in town. The view from down here, let's you see Ronda as one of the white hill towns, and not just some giant tourist spot. Make sure to... More

This si a short but very informative museum on the used of bath in the old days. The site is well preserved and the videos clearly explained the functioning of the bath. Worth a stop but don't plan to spend too much time here.

A beautiful setting and fascinating remains of the old baths. The video presentation is very well done, so that even though it is in Spanish the animation clearly shows the process of gathering and carrying the water to be heated for the baths. The arched ceilings, supported on colonnades and letting in light through stars in the roof, are delightful.... More

Beautiful walk down to the baths from the Puente Nuevo - gives a nice overview of a part of life during the Muslim era of Andalusia

We climbed down a LOT of stairs from the main streets of Ronda to visit the Arab Public Baths. On the way, we got to see the Old Bridge as well. Some of the signage for the Baths was a bit unclear but we finally found it. We paid the small admission fee. The clerk was very irritated that we... More

Another interesting little gem in Ronda, the ruins are not that large but the short movie is well made and provides a good explanation of these ruins. We found this site to be more interesting than the similar site in Cordoba.
