Centrally located

It is centrally located and you can look around for free. We visited it during a walking tour but it has a small description in the entry.

All the guide books recommend visiting this place although I'm not entirely sure why - it's easy enough to get to as it's off a main road and well signposted. The doorway is very beautiful and a lovely example of Moorish architecture but that's about it - inside are the remains of a courtyard and a Spanish government office (I... More

This building was a wonderful find. Lovely old coal merchants inn and trading house. A delightfully cool spot on a hot day and free to enter.

Somehow, this doesn't seem like a tourist destination, especially in a city so full of amazing history and architecture. Not worth going out of your way to see.

An interesting spot to see with our guide. He told us all the history on it. If my memory serves me right, it is one of the oldest buildings in Granada.

Formerly an old warehouse, the place now is restored and accessible for free. Just walk in and enjoy the simple architecture. It feels like a small oasis within the city.

We entered the courtyard of this nice place to find the office to validate our earlier printed tickets for the Alhambra.. walked a bit around it, but comparing to the other sites in Granada it doesn't offer anything special ...
