Arab Baths
 
Arab Baths are one of the most emblematic monuments of Palma, at 7 Can Serra Street, inside Can Fontirroig manor gardens, are one of the few memories of Muslim architecture in Mallorca.
 
Only the hot bath central hall and a rectangle shape room attached remain today, with very thick walls and arbors regarding to Muslim era.
 
Entrance is a horseshoe arch gate that leads into a cubic room that has a brick dome with skylights supported by horseshoe arches over twelve columns and a side corridor. Most of these chapiters suggest a building with other structure ruins.
 
There are remains of fireplaces and hot water and steam pipes and a narrow hallway, as a changing room, allows getting into the warm room before the hot one.
