Nice walk down through the old part of town, well worth the effort.....mid morning and you may encounter the local farmer walking his sheep to pasture up through the streets.

Incredible feat of engineering. A history lesson in Ronda. Lots of see and a five minute film explaining all the detail.

We popped in and it was well worth it. The Arab public baths are different in that the water is splashed on you. Hot and then cold. In the Arab culture baths are to purify the individual. Shared pools of water would not be considered as the water would be dirty from others.

Fascinating place with a good film (10 mins) plus delightful gardens. Worth buying the combination ticket which gives access to 4 attractions. The easiest way to get there is by the path from far end of the old town about 100m before the church of the holy spirit

Located at the bottom of the gorge - a good, though steep, walk down Calle Marques de Salvatierra to the Old Bridge then further down to the Roman Bridge. Dating prior to the 15th century,There is a film in both Spanish and English to explain what you can see, how it used to work and so on. The baths are... More

We loved these baths. The best part is the video which someone mentioned. I think it's the best one I've ever seen in a museum. So interesting and kept my young children captivated. It really bought the baths to life, helpfully providing the context of how they fit into city existence.

It is a small, but well restored arab bath. There is a video set up to explain the different rooms and some of the history, which we though was informative. The scale of the place is small, but still worth a look.

The Arab baths are worth your time and visit but you will have seen it all in less than 15 min. It's quite small and the gardens aren't that special but the history and the film about it's construction and its function is quite interesting so make sure you'll see that.

Disappointing as you can see most of it from the outside without going in. Or just look at the pictures on TripAdvisor. The ticket attendent was rude and charged me for an adult when i asked for a student ticket. He then said I already paid and cant get the difference back. The attraction js just one room which you...
