Oak Baths Guided Excursion

We'll start our guided tour in the Oak Baths and make our first stop will be the Muslim castle of Bury Al-Hama from the Caliphate period (10th century). A simple glance at its imposing façade will confirm that it is one of the best preserved castles in Europe and the only one in Europe made of taqiyya. We'll walk around its towers and from inside, we'll be able to admire spectacular views of the village.

During the excursion, we'll make an interesting visit to the church of San Mateo and the hermitage of Cristo del Llano. The latter will surprise you with its strident figures and eye catching decorations considered one of the best examples of Andalusian rococo baroque. Mirrors embedded in the walls reflect on the sculptures and create a spiritual and solemn atmosphere.

Our trip will continue with a walk through the historic centre of Oak Baths and we'll be able to contemplate stately houses and other ancient jewels, which are still preserved.

After two hours of touring, we'll conclude our excursion.

Things to consider 

  • On some occasions and for reasons beyond our control, the interior of some buildings will be closed and we'll not be able to access them.
