 Arab baths (Girona)

A little history of the Arab baths (Girona)

It is a Romanesque construction from the 12th century and they are, in fact, the best-preserved Romanesque-style public baths that exist.

If you look closely, you will appreciate that its aesthetics mimicked Muslim baths. That is precisely the reason for its name.

However, the building has received numerous renovations over the years. During the invasions and sieges that the city has suffered over time, it suffered great damage. Due to this, it had to be restored in the 13th century; and since then they continued to function as baths until their closure in the 15th century.

It was then that the Arab baths of Girona passed into private hands. First, as part of a convent. Until in the twentieth century they regained public ownership and were rehabilitated like the Arab baths that we know today.

Today it receives many visits.

As a curiosity, there is a scene from Game of Thrones filmed in the Arab baths of Girona in which Arya, one of the protagonists, appears. For this reason, it is also a must-see for fans of the well-known medieval fantasy saga.
