HAMMAM AL ÁNDALUS GRANADA
One of the best hammams in Andalucia - is Hammam al Andalus. Parts of the building were at one time used as
a bath house and a well (which served the adjoining mosque, now the
Church of Santa Ana) before it was converted into a bakers after the re-conquest of the city by the Catholic Kings.
You enter through a low, stone-arched doorway into a tiny, wooden balconied courtyard draped with hanging plants.
Once inside, you move through a series of pools lined with highly decorative tiles, finishing up with a refreshing,
sugary mint tea and an icy dip (massages are an optional extra). It’s best tied in with a visit to the original,
11th-century El Banuelo on the other side of the River Darro.
