The cold baths room no longer exists. There is a square room with 12 columns that support a copula with round apertures. A narrow corridor led to an area that served as a dressing room. Materials from other buildings were used in its construction. These baths possibly formed part of the Palace of some noble Moslem. The Arabs carried out a complex hydraulic system for the city. There is a double floor with alcoves through which hot water traveled. The Arabs also built mosques, inns and other baths as these. They also built the palace known as ‘’ S’Almudaina ‘’.
