Bañuelo were the hammanes baths, the place where the inhabitants of the district went to wash, look after themselves and converse. The Bañuelo bathhouse dates from the XI Century and is one of the best preserved in Spain. The building is divided into three rectangular rooms. Next to the entrance courtyard is the cold room, then the warm room, which is larger, and decorated with horseshoe arcades in three of its sides. Finally, another rectangular room with two spaces where the water baths were placed was the hottest water room.
