Situated in the outskirts of La Malahá, opposite the salt wells, lie the thermal Arab baths. The stone cupolas and the thermal swimming pool are still in good condition. The town’s heyday was in the Nasrid period, when it was known as Meleja (meaning smooth and calm). Its ancient spas were described as ‘the springs of the waters of beauty’. It is also said that the medicinal effects of the waters cured different diseases, including skin and eye afflictions.
