Great place to visit and fortunate for us, we visited Ronda on a Tuesday to find this attraction open for free in the afternoon. (Casa Del Gigante is also free on a Tuesday, 10:00-14:00).

Didn't go in but you can get a good picture from the road. Would have gone in but the ticket man was having his smoke break and also on the phone so didn't bother. Very nice though

Worth a visit if you have time as part of a walk around Ronda. Only takes about twenty minutes and very little explanation apart from an English language film inside the hot bath house.

Ronda was an important strategic town during the last period of the Nasrid kingdom of Granada and not surprisingly had a hamman or bath which is adapted from the Roman era. A large part of the original bath chambers are intact and this is unqiue aspect to the site. There is a English and Spanish video with plenty of seating inside one of the chambers which explains how the water and steam system worked and particular features of this large bathhouse (you can look up through the ceiling and the star shaped outlets and imagine easily how it may have been when it was in use). There are also pamphlets in different languages provided at the ticket desk.

The bathhouse is actually located outside of the city walls and down in the valley so its a bit of a hike downward but you can visit Ronda's famous bridges on the way down. Coming back is a steep climb but there is slightly less steep ascent possible.

Tip: buy a muti entry ticket from the Palace of Mondragon which provides entry to four of Ronda's main historical sites including the baths.

Only a small area to see but the baths are well documented and interesting. The video presentation was a bit lame though
