Centro Cultural Baños Árabes, Jaen

4.7
See how nobility of Moorish times relaxed and rejuvenated at Centro Cultural Baños Árabes, where steam forced pollutants out of the body through persipiration (rather than a soak in hot water like the Romans offered). The baths are designed with three chambers: cold, warm, and hot. Water was pumped in using a traditional Moorish waterwheel and sophisticated engineering allowed it to be heated from a boiler room down below. Horseshoe arches of brick and stone decorate the main chamber, supporting the barrel-vaulted ceilings and star-shaped skylights. You can access an observation deck from above to truly appreciate the architectural feat. To visit Centro Cultural Baños Árabes on your trip to Jaen, use our Jaen online vacation builder.

  • The building and museum above the arab baths are very interesting and the bath remains are worth seeing. Free to EU citizens so Brits will have to pay after Brexit.  more »
  • Off the beaten track. Well restored bath house. Impressive well renovated. Worthwhile the visit. Surprisingly for free. Different smells in every sub level area, smells of the past.  more »
