The Balneario de la Palma is one of the most unique buildings of the city. Opened in 1926, it replaced the traditional Baños del Real.

It is a building made of reinforced concrete, which has two distinct nuclei: the entrance hall, built on the wall (la Muralla) and the Spa called Balneario, built on pillars on the beach of the Caleta.

The building currently houses the offices of the Underwater Archaeology Centre of Andalusia. Its scope is focused on the research of the existing Underwater Archaeological Heritage in the Andalusian territory through documentation, intervention, conservation and restoration.
