Carrer de Serra 7, Palma de Mallorca

The Arab Baths are a spectacular archaeological site which date back to the 11th century and are the only remaining monument of the Muslim settlement on the island.

Two small underground chambers are the only parts of the building which still exist today, one of which was used for bathing. The remains of the square hot bath room have been left untouched since they were built and there are 12 ancient columns and horseshoe arches which support the dome crowning the room- this is one of the most striking features in the building. The double floor of the bathing room was used to transport steam and water through to the room.

The Arab Baths are surrounded by the Can Fontirroig gardens and are open from April to November from 9 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from December to March. There is an entrance free of around €1.50.
