Beautiful conserved building. Not so crowed at the time I visited. Next time I would get a walking tour guide to understand more details about this wonderful city.

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.

The Corral was a caravanesei, basically an inn for travelers and their animals when they would come into Granada. While the inside looks quite run down, the true gem is the entrance, including the amazing geometrical pattern within the moorish Arch which reveals Arabic Calligraphy from the Moors.

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 ...

The architecture of this building is quite unusual and there is a large patio in its middle. One can pick up Alhambra tickets here at the Ticketmaster machine there. The site could be made attractive if they added potted plants and flowers. Today it looks bare.

When we went in search for the office to validate our Alhambra passes,we did not expect the ticket office to be located in this interesting courtyard. We later revisited this area on a walking tour and discovered that this was one of the oldest Arab structure of this kind in Spain. It was constructed some time in the 14th century... More

If getting your tx for the Alhambra you need to walk in/through the courtyard. Its really very pretty but you can take it all in in under 10 minutes. Im not sure I woulld go out of my way to see it but if anywhere near Old Town, Plaza Nueva, Albayzin you are right by it so might as well... More
