Carrer de Can Serra, 7, 07001 Palma, Illes Balears, Spain
Banys ÀrabsWhile the Moorish occupation of Mallorca lasted for more than three centuries, from 902 to 1229, unlike some cities in Andalucia with monumental masterpieces that have survived the ages, little remains in Palma de Mallorca. In fact, there's only one building still standing from the Moorish period, the Arab Baths (Banys Àrabs in Catalan, Baños Arabes in Spanish). The baths today consists of two small chambers, the former warm and hot chambers. On the site there is also a pleasant if small garden planted with cacti, palms, and geraniums. As it won't take long to explore the baths, you may want to rest for a while in the garden before continuing your exploration of Palma's historic quarter.
