This restored 14th century Caravanersi is worth a visit. Most will stay for five to ten minutes. Me, I happily pottered around for best part of thirty minutes, taking photos, sketching building detail in my notebook and closing (the best bit and the point of going) my eyes and trying to imagine the hustle and bustle of a courtyard full...

No fee to have a wander. Unfriendly staff should not prohibit you having a look Imposing entrance but really not much to see…although the fact it is still standing does impress.

An abrupt official shouted at me for putting my hand on the trunk of a grapevine. If there is no Tochas Plantas then it would help if they at least put up a sign stating that rather than just shouting at tourists who happen to be admiring the vines.

it is a very interesting historic place, free to visit, where one could see different shows outdoor. Especially go and see a flamenco show.

Whilst just strolling in Granada we spotted an impressive Moorish portal and passing through it my wife and I were transported back several centuries to an early C14th granary of Granada. The three floors are supported by stone columns and it is amazing that it still survives considering there is a lot of wood. It has had many uses over... More

Kids ( ages 7 and 9) were utterly fascinated by this spot. Using the information in my next book on Spain, I told the kids of the travelers who would stop here on their journey along the silk road. They would tell stories around the campfire and rest with their camels for the night. Learn more at www.theeducationaltourist.com

The entrance to the Corral del Carbon has a Moorish design. When one enters one sees a large patio with a large building around it. The building looks modern, so it does not go with the architecture of the doorway. The good thing is that it has survived over the centuries.

We spent much more time trying to locate the Corral de Carbon then we did actually looking at it (after we finally did locate it). The write-up in the tourism brochure made it sound really interesting ... not so. Now it seems to be used as government offices and the last thing they want is tourists wandering through their day.... More

You do this on the classic historical walk around Granada. It was the caravansery, I gather. Nothing much to see here, so takes you about 3 minutes if it's open. But the neighborhood is definitely worth wandering, so since you're here, stop by.

I am so glad that I find it accidentally while wondering for the Granada Mosque. If you are interested in the 14th century daily living, this would fill in your interest. This building used as a motel for the merchants especially coal. Now, its a government office and will preserved. Unfortunately access to upper floors not allowed. Entrance of the... More
