These baths are down in the basement of the Gibraltar Museum.The baths consist of rooms similar to the Roman Hypocaust system of baths with a normal temperature room for undressing, a cold room and a hot room. Channels under the floor would allow warm air to circulate as a form of underfloor heating. This process of bathing would act like modern saunas whereby moving between hot and cold temperatures cleanses the body by sweating.

Thank you pumpkinhead, rJan, Denise and Joy for your comments. Actually, this is part of the remains of the original Moorish baths and only now used for display purposes. But it is very relaxing just visiting them. The Museum itself has lots of historical artefacts. Including some relics and tools that were used far back as the Neanderthal Man.
