Il Sacromonte (o Sacramonte, come lo chiamano anche quelli del luogo) è un quartiere della città di Granada, in Spagna, situato nella zona orientale della capitale granadina. È uno dei sei rioni che formano il distretto di Albaicín. Il Sacromonte confina con i quartieri di Albayzín, San Pedro, Realejo-San Matías, El Fargue e Haza Grande.
Free admission Sunday added something to the visit. It was well worth the walk in the sun because the restoration that has been done was relatively subtle and gave us a real good idea what the old Arab baths might have been like. Somehow you do expect everything to be a little larger, given that it was a main bath house. The spaces were no larger than a lounge room. However, the water heating and underfloor heat distribution were very modern for a thousand years ago. The interactive video sites were also very good to use, because they gave us a better idea of exactly what had been in place.
We got lucky during our visit because it was free entry. The staff were very friendly and most helpful and knowledgeable about the history of the not just the Bañuelo but also the Albayzin quarter. 👏
It is okay. Caters for tourists, the waiters are very smart. Good views. Very touristy.
Very interesting to see these 11th century baths. Although the dome at the entrance no longer exists, the general architecture is quite well preserved.
Interesting small hidden place. We were the only one inside when we visited in January. Service a little bit unfriendly and grumpy at the front desk. But just buy the ticket by the machine near entrance and you’re sorted :)
Nice to see. Great 3D reproduction in iPad in last room. Awesome old city gate outside too on the opposite side of the road. The baths are very well preserved. I saw them in Ronda too. Very similar. Great to see.
If you have a combined ticket (5 € - Casa Horno de Oro, El Banuelo, Palacio Dar al-Horra) worth to visit otherwise it isn't. For me it is not so interesting. The only good thing is the tablets in the rooms which show you in its screen how the rooms look many-many years ago during Nasrids. There will be a well renovated room with colors and paintings but now it's not open unfortunately (it's half done).
I have given this place 4 stars rather than 5 only due to its small size and niche appeal. Quite a small but beautifully preserved historic site consisting of the oldest buildings in Granada, a series of Moorish bathing houses. Self guide around the 4 or 5 reasonably large rooms. Fascinating inside into historic communal bathing. Lovely building still being excavated. Not worth a special trip into busy Granada but really interesting if you are doing the other sites. Free entry on a Sunday when I visited.
It is a decent preserved bath dating back to few centuries. Guess they should have more information around for 5 euros charged.
The interactive screens weren't there the day we went. It's small and not very decorated, worth stopping in only on a Sunday when it's free. Very similar to the baths inside the Alhambra
Don’t expect to see great architecture but just experience the old glamour how good people could create such buildings with luxury without all the modern techniques we have now. It is small but a have to visit site in Granada. Buy the ticket there and you have paid for entrance for several ‘Doblo Oro’ sites, €5,- for adult’s
Great historical details about the ancient method of bathing in the region and an atmospheric environment as well, very photographic
