Hammam in Seville | The Arab baths Aire de Sevilla

Usually a weekend in Seville means a hectic day of visiting Alcazar Cathedral and Plaza de Toros. However there’s something else to expect such as an evening to the rhythm of sevillana until the early hours of the morning, An idea that rhymes with relaxation and tranquility.

Trust me and close your eyes, imagine a place where time seems to have stopped in the ancient glories of the Arab world, imagine tanks of boiling water between gilt and inlaid wood, imagine rooms full of steam and ambrosial nectar of restoration. A dream that through the magic of an enchanted city will become a reality. In a small narrow street of the Barrio Santa Cruz await the Arab baths in Seville: Aire de Sevilla.

In full respect of tradition, in an old building with lots of Andalusian patio with fountains and flowers there is a secret underground world ideal for spending an hour in the sun. Rooms large hot tempered to 36°, a hot and a cold one from 40° to 16°. A small room with a starry dome is dedicated to a whirlpool with bubbles and waterfalls of the most powerful. I’ve even tried a hammam steam room which was unique and refreshing. For a delicious break then find a room with tea and drinks and heated seats. Do not forget to visit the salt water pool with the time of the Roman era.

The journey takes an hour and a half and prices vary depending on the treatment you choose. The visit is complete with a spa bath and aromatherapy that allows you access to the pools and hammam. It costs 26 euro, far less than in many spa here in the area and I assure you that it is absolutely worth it. A word of advice: stop after bathing in teteria at the first floor and enjoy a snack of sweet tea scents and oriental sweets with almonds and chocolate.
