While the history of the ancient Jewish baths is relatively interesting, the visit itself is underwhelming and should take no longer than 5 minutes. The guide (who was the shop manager) was very well informed and spoke excellent English, making the trip slightly more worthwhile,...More

A good insight to life 100's of years ago - only €5 entry fee for a guided tour of about 20 mins. Shame we could not take photos.

It's amazing this place has survived, and was "rediscovered" intact. Worth the fee and the steps to get down, just be careful as slippery. Highly recommend.

Worth a visit. Its a miracle this place has survived and the luck of someone taking the time and effort (and money) to excavate. A real life glimpse into history. I wish they allowed photos but was happy to purchase the book.

We learned about this unusual site from our guide and were so glad we were able to see it. Ancient baths (mikvah) were carved out of rock where a natural spring had been discovered.. hidden and only recently discovered. I highly recommend a visit.

I was very disappointed that although my Michelin green guide, in English, said that the Mikvah was open until 5 p.m. during winter months, when I arrived around 2, I was summarily dismissed and told that it was open only in the morning. The man...More

I was very impressed by the way the owner discovered the hidden treasure of the Mikvah beneath her property and what she did to restore it to its current state. This was fascinating. Worth going to see and learn. I bought the book to learn...More

This is a Jewish ritual bath that was hand-carved underground 2000 years ago and used until the Jews hid it in the 1400s before they were forced out during the Inquisition. Supposely the largest (has 5 individual baths) and oldest in Europe. It was accidentally...More
