Caliphal Baths (Baños del Alcázar Califal)
Back in the 10th century, Cordoba was home to as many as one million residents and up to 600 Moorish bathhouses, the latter a true symbol of the southern Spanish city’s importance in those times. Once serving as the bathhouse of the caliphs, Cordoba’s Caliphal Baths (Baños del Alcázar Califal) are among the very few that still remain today. In fact, they spent centuries hidden until in 1961 they were rediscovered and restored.

The hammam, as this type of Arab bathhouse is often called, consists of various rooms, most notably, in the Caliphal Baths’ case, the cool room. Back in its day, it had the most elaborate features, and is where the caliphs would spend most of their time bathhouse time. The cool and hot rooms displayed typical hammam characteristics such as the star-windowed ceilings and horseshoe-shaped arches, both elements that you can still see today. During your visit you can explore these serene spaces, as well as learn more during an informative introductory video.

Practical Info

They are located just over a block away from the Mosque-Cathedral, but keep your eyes peeled, as they may go easily unnoticed given they are situated below ground.
