Tour description provided by Viator

Seek serenity at Madrid’s Arabian baths, Hamman Al Ándalus, and spend 1.5 hours relaxing body, soul and mind! The zen-like oasis with candle-lit walkways boasts three thermal plunge pools and a steam room – all decorated in resplendent Arabian décor. Spend time in the baths, relaxing and sipping on mint tea, and then head to the Aroma Corner for a 15-minute massage by your expert masseuse. Alternatively upgrade to a 30-minute massage that includes an exfoliating body scrub.

In Madrid’s Almudena neighborhood is a large underground cistern that was built by the Moors –Spain’s medieval Arab immigrants. Right at the top of it is Hamman Al Ándalus, a luxurious Arabian baths where Madrileños have gathered for centuries to take a break from their daily lives.

Follow the local’s lead by stepping inside and enjoy 1.5 hours at leisure. The baths are a haven of tranquility with beautifully designed Arabian décor featuring candle-lit walk ways, vaulted ceilings, and atmospheric chambers. Unlimited mint tea and glasses of water are available for you to drink while inside.

Relax your muscles with a dip in the hot thermal bath, and then stimulate your senses by jumping in the cold one. Wallow in the warm pool and sit back visualizing times-gone-by when the Spanish would stay for hours, discussing business, politics, religion and their day-to-day lives. Sit in the steam room, breathing in its soothing vapors, infused with aromatic essences, and then wander over to the bath’s Aroma Corner for a massage.

Choose from oils scented with rose, lavender, violet or red amber, and then submit to total relaxation as your masseuse applies gentle pressure during your 15-minute massage. If you want to enjoy a longer massage with an exfoliating body scrub then why not upgrade? Book the 30-minute massage instead, and simply leave the baths a little earlier before heading to the Aroma Corner. Start with an exfoliating scrub (known as Al Ándalus Ritual) to remove dead skin cells and stimulate blood circulation, and then enjoy a longer massage. At the end of your session, head to the showers and then leave the baths feeling relaxed and revitalized, and ready to hit Madrid!
