The Bañuelo

Entrada al Bañuelo

The Abbey of "El Sacromonte" was founded in the 17th century. Under the church there are the catacombs where St. Cecilio, the first bishop and actual Patron of Granada, suffered martyrdom. The monument was designed by Juan de Maeda and finished in 1567 and it is located next to the "Darro" river.

The vaults with skylights are also typical elements of the baths. Here these vaults are octagonal and with star shapes. The capitals of the columns are Roman, Visigothic and from the Caliphate period. In the last room there are pipes that carried the warm water underground to heat up these rooms.

If you just want to know the Bañuelo, I would definitely be interested in the following tour:
