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.
