Hotel Abad Toledo

Discover the Medina Mudéjar Arab Baths and immerse yourself in the history of Toledo

Whilst walking around the narrow and winding streets of Toledo, have you ever asked yourself what it was like to live here during medieval times? Have you ever wondered how three cultures which were so different from each other managed to coexist in the same space and moment in time, where they socialised, where they conversed and how they enjoyed their free time? Can you imagine it? Well, now you can experience it for yourself.

Today, the Medina Mudéjar Arab Baths comprise the tradition of the multiple public baths which existed in the city during the Middle Ages, designed respecting the original structure of the building, the uneven courtyard, the Islamic wall from the Twelfth century, the tiles from back in time and the old well.
