Someone needs to do something about these advertisements

  • I worked on GUIASGRANADA for neutrality. I would have deleted it entirely (seemed commercial), but I can't tell from the site whether they're a commercial company or an official local organisation. Anyone know? WTDuck2 07:23, 13 June 2007 (EDT)


I rolled back the removal of the baths. I'm not sure why they were taken out (comment was "Not more important that Alhambra"). I think there's room for them under See (or possibly Do). I enjoyed them myself, last time I was in Granada. I think they are fairly unique in Europe and worth a listing. Comments? Maj 15:58, 3 August 2006 (EDT)

The baths were not removed - they were moved further down the list. The revert moved them back up again. ~ 16:08, 3 August 2006 (EDT)
I am responsible of that edition. I am sorry for not having answered before, I just didnt visit the page till now. Well, indeed they are worthwhile, but the change was done to remark that they are not the "Muslim baths in Granada" as they are referred in the article, but a private spa, constructed in the 90`s with good taste and some historical references, but there ARE Mooriish historical baths in Granada, and this deserves more attention than this commercial spa. Even more, one can see the original baths and appreciate more swimming in the reconstruction. As it is by now in the article, it figures as more important than the Corral del Carbón, a Nasrid Funduq, unique in Europe, or than the true Hammams as:
  • El Bañuelo, at the Carrera del Darro
  • The Baths of the Alhambra (although nowadays not visible)
  • The baths of the mosque of the Alhambra
Am I wrong? Besides, I didn´t delete it, just moved down and wrote its modern construction and commercial essence. Is good to have bussiness in Granada, but not that good that the tourists think they have been in "the Muslim baths of the city" instead of the real ones.-- 06:52, 3 November 2006 (EST)


I don't think this should be listed without having a full list of schools which offer study abroad spanish course in Granada. Seems almost like an advertisement.
