One of the tourist venues in the city. It was more extensive than I imagined but was very interesting. It is on several floors with a cafe on the top floor. The basement is the most interesting part and is worth seeing.

Free entry to a very interesting museum, with fantastic views over Jaen from roof top terrace / cafe. Open most of the day when the rest of the city is on siesta. Good place also to cool off on a hot day.

First class museum. Entry is free. According to the blurb, the best preserved Moorish baths in Europe/North Africa. Also has a good and reasonable cafeteria. Very friendly staff.

The Banos Arabes of Jaen are perhaps one of the largest examples of its type. It is essentially the excavated remains of the old baths: don’t expect tiled walls or any water! That said, the museum displays the baths to excellent effect and the other...More

I agree the baths are well worth seeing - and the rooftop terrace lovely - but for me the highlight of this excellent museum complex is the very impressive Manuel Moral International Museum of Naive Art. It has an extensive collection of wonderfully colourful paintings...More
