Spanish name: Museo Arqueológico Los Baños

Museo Arqueológico Los Baños The museum takes a look at 2000 years of history, from the archaeological remains of the Roman thermal baths, to those of the Islamic baths and 19th century spa. The museum, which has a garden where water is a focal point, houses thematic areas relating to different civilizations.
 
The baths, used for leisure and also for their medicinal properties, had three thermal areas: one cold, one lukewarm and one very hot, with holes in the roof to evacuate steam. Women and men bathed separately, so each had a room that visitors can now see.
 
Information panels and audiovisual resources explain the cultural and constructive evolution of the thermal area and the heritage conservation process. These archaeological remains were declared a historical-artistic site and national monument in the year 1983.
