The owners of the Giralda café in Seville, Spain, have used the lockdown period due to the corona virus to carry out renovation works. They then made a special discovery, namely an Islamic bathhouse from the twelfth century, with a unique decoration inside.
The Moorish bathhouse has been completely painted. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/12th-century-hammam-discovered-in-seville.html
The quality of the decorations is high. It is the only Moorish bathhouse with such decorations, ”says archaeologist Álvaro Jiménez in El Pais.
The bar can be found in Calle Mateos Gago in Seville, the capital of Andalusia, and in recent months has become a real museum of Arabian heritage. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/12th-century-hammam-discovered-in-seville.html

The hammam would then have been hidden.
The discovery is significant as it provides a detailed view of the Moorish baths in the Almohad era. “What is now the entrance to a bar used to be the hammam. In addition, you have a cold room 4.10 meters high and 13 meters long and another room that is now used as a kitchen,” says the archaeologist.
88 torches of various shapes and sizes were also discovered. They have been part of the decor and surrounded by red geometric lace paintings that follow a pattern, ”said Fernando Amores.
I hope you are in health and well.
