‪Not Much to See From the Street & Closed on Mondays‬
פבר׳ 2020
‪These ancient Arab baths are very close to the Alcazar and are in the heart of the historic centre. There’s not much to see from the street. The entry is downstairs and underground so unless you enter, you won’t see anything much at all, although Campo Santo de los Mártires where the baths are located, is pretty with lots of beautiful orange trees, covered in fruit.
Public baths were very important for washing and ritual and in the time of Caliph Abd al-Rahman III (912-961), when these ones were built, there were about 300 of them. This was the biggest. The Caliphal baths disappeared altogether in 1328 and were swallowed up by earth when King Alfonso XI, buried them. He was building a new bath for his long-time mistress, Eleanor de Guzmán in the new Alcazar so he wasn’t too bothered about keeping these ones. Instead, he decided to bury them and build a parade square on the top. They were only fully uncovered in the 1960s, when they realised that it was actually a massive complex, much larger than anyone had realised.
NOTE – they are closed on Mondays.‬

‪The baths are closed until further notice due to the Covid-19 crisis. As they are underground there is absolutely nothing to see by visiting the site. I took a photo of the Opening Hours sign for people's reference for when they do re-open.‬

‪Great find‬
יוני 2019
‪We were glad we visited Banos del Alcazar Califal de Cordoba. This 10th century construction had been lost for ages until their discovery in 1903. However they were again somehow buried away until finally they were rediscovered in the 1960s! There is not a great deal surviving but the remains, along with video on site, give it a new lease of life and provide the visitor with a fair idea of their usefulness and how they worked. Definitely worth visiting.‬

‪Ducked in for quick interesting visit on way from Alcazar back to cathedral Sept. 18, 2019‬
ספט׳ 2019
‪This was right on our way back to the cathedral to meet up with our group and for the 3 Euro / person entry fee was well worth the visit.

Went through to fast to take any pictures, but did watch the video.

But this was an interesting recreation and historical perspective of these baths.‬

‪Interesting add on to the Alcazar ticket‬
אוק׳ 2019
‪As has often been our experience, the low price 'add on' to a major venue has proved to be worth the, in this case, 1 euro. There is a well presented video at the start and good information in both Spanish and English at each location round the ruins.‬

‪Unfortunately, not much has survived of these Arab baths. However, they are still worth a visit and there is a very interesting video at the entrance which explains the history of the baths and shows what they looked like and what each room was for. As you walk around, the best feature is the ceiling which can still be seen in some rooms and which has star shaped holes where the sun light filters in.‬

‪Really lovely monument to visit but the staff on the entrance could have made an effort to be nice to visitors. Not very welcoming.‬

‪It’s difficult with ancient ruins presented in a preserved state. In many ways it’s not enough. Would be great to have a section restored to its original state thus giving a real feel to the whole experience,
Fascinating though to read of the history. There is a lot to think about if you take the time.
If Roman ruins are your thing this is a must, thee is one chamber that outshines the rest.
In itself it is worth the visit,‬

‪Although there is not much left of the baths, interesting to visit and have a guess of how the old emirs of Cordoba lived and enjoyed life. Cheap tickets‬

‪Cordoba is full of amazing things to visit, and this is one of the best. A 5 euro entrance fee gives you a chance to see one of the classic Arabic monuments that make this city famous.Beautifully laid out, it is a feat of architectural genius dating back to another era. A must if you come to Cordoba.‬
