It’s remarkable that these 11th-century “baths of the walnut tree,” as they were known by the Moors, escaped destruction during the reign of the Reyes Católicos (Fernando and Isabel). Among the oldest buildings still standing in Granada, and among the best-preserved Muslim baths in Spain, they predate the Alhambra. Many of the stones used in their construction show the signs of Visigothic and Roman carving, especially the capitals.
