El Hammam is one of the "most memorable" experiences in Andalucia
People planning adventure holidays in Andalucia will find a traditional and authentic Turkish bathhouse in the heart of one of the region's busiest cities.
That is according to Kate Duignan, who wrote in to The Guardian newspaper that El Hammam baths in Malaga was one of the "most memorable" experiences in the whole of the city.
According to Ms Duignan, the hammam - the Turkish word for a bath - is relaxing and only a short walk from the city's Picasso Museum, which is one another top attraction in Malaga.
"The hammam in Malaga is the antithesis of the Costa del Sol. Calm, dimly lit, it is as authentic as I have found outside of Turkey," she said.
"You can have a steam – no time limit - or book a massage as part of a package. The massage takes place either in the hammam itself on a marble slab, or (for more privacy) in a separate room."
Malaga is the sixth largest city in Spain and the second largest in Andalucia, behind the regional capital of Seville.
