The baths are located in the modern residential centre of Granada in the Calle San Miguel Alta near Calle Puentezuelas (location on GOOGLEMAP).
As far back as Roman times, the baths were an extremely important part of daily life. As well as serving a social purpose where people could meet up with friends or business associates, the baths also provided a peaceful place for cleansing and relaxation. The buildings are also of architectural interest with their star-shaped openings in the ceilings to let in the light and arched supports.
Although the aristocracy and royalty would often have baths in their own mansions and palaces, the rest of society would use the public baths with their barbers, hairdressers, make-up artists and masseurs.
