El Bañuelo

Standard

El Bañuelo is just one of those things that, if you’re spending any time in Granada at all, you don’t really have an excuse not to visit it. It is an old public Arab bath (hammam) located right on Paseo de Los Tristes (or Carrera del Darro) that is free to get into and open from 10am to 2pm on Tuesdays through Saturdays. Keep your eyes out though! It’s quite easy to miss though it’s right on the road.

It’s pretty small, but a good opportunity to see an authentic Arab bath unchanged from the time it was used in the past. You can easily stop by and check it out for a few minutes and then continue walking up along the road to see a decent view from below of the Alhambra and continue your explorations in the Albaycin or relax in one of the cafés along the street for a cup of tea or some ice cream.

About gabbyjockers

Just a student who loves to travel, eat, cook, have adventures and hang out with awesome people! I'm restless and want to see the whole world. Music powers me and I love listening to new things and going to shows with my crazy friends. I grew up in South Florida and made the move up to Boston for college as soon as I could. Right now I'm doing an internship in marketing for The Alleyway in Beirut and it's pretty exciting being here!
