Long Description:
The building in which the modern Hammam is located dates from the 13th to 14th centuries and is surmised to be the location of a former Hammam given its proximity to the former Arab baths and the mosque which used to stand on the current spot of the Santa Ana Church.

As of 2014, this establishment is rated very high in Tripadvisor.

You enter through a low, stone-arched doorway into a tiny, wooden balconied courtyard draped with hanging plants. Once inside, you move through a series of pools lined with highly decorative tiles, finishing up with a refreshing, sugary mint tea and an icy dip (massages are an optional extra).
This is primarily a: Hammam/Turkish/Roman Bath
