The result of years of several improvements and alterations on the "Andalusi Baths" are three different separate areas. The east is the Caliphal Bath, a reception room of the Taifa period. The west is an Almohad bath. In the Caliphal bath there is an arcade, a dressing room, the cold water room, a lukewarm water room and a hot water room as well as an oven, woodshed and service areas. The bathing course followed an L-shaped passageway, that way, the main rooms could not be seen from outside.
A porticoed hall led from the Caliphal to the Almohad baths. At its front there was a garden with a fountain. The reception hall, erected in the 11th Century during the Taifa of Seville, was accessed through this portico.
Under the reign of the Almohad Dynasty in the 12th Century a new royal bath was built. The lateral hall rooms were reused as a vestibule area. The old oven was kept.
