Museo Casa de Los Tiros de Granada is a 16th century palace, as it was built to reflect the architecture of those times. Its original name came from the cannons that appear between its battlements. It was actually part of the wall of the local neighbourhood, and that is the reason it looks like a military fortress. Over time things changed. Now it's a museum exhibiting local history. It has arts and crafts and the like. Worth a visit if you happen to be nearby, but not necessarily a must see.

This is free iand it's an easy drop in to see some examples of Andalusian crafts, vintage photos, odds and ends, and a nice group of portraits of the major players, including Ferdinand and Isabella, the Catholic monarchs, who were not pretty people. Granada has several places which are fun little ways to grab a bite of history, and this is one.

Interesting house and small local history museum, but the best points are the portraits of royalty along the stairs which show you Isabel and Fernando and all the others you've been hearing about if you have been visiting Granada. Highpoint definitely the carved and black and gold painted ceiling called Cuadra Dorada, exceptional. On the main road in the Realejo área, entrance is free.

This was one of the first grand houses built after the Reconquista of Granada. Only the tower remains of the 16th century palace. The carved wooden ceiling is well worth the visit. It depicts heroes and heroines of the Reconquista from several centuries. The building is also a museum and houses various exhibits. But the exterior facade, the entranceway, and the wooden ceiling are the stars. If you speak Spanish, then chat with the attendant. I got some interesting history and a good tip on where to visit some interesting local history nearby.

A 16thC palace with a fortress-like appearance from the street. A short distance off the usual tourist track, but worth the effort if you appreciate seeing such historic residences and seek a little peace. It is also a museum with an eclectic mix of exhibits showing something of Granada’s more recent history.
