The inner courtyard is actually quite ugly. The only redeeming feature of this historic place is the Morrish style archway in the entrance. HIstorically interesting as this used to be where they traded grain and in later years coal.

This dates back to the 14th century, according to the guide book. The arch is beautiful and beyond it is the courtyard of a very plain building. The visit took us just a few minutes. The tourist office was not open when we were there....More

Great surviving Nasarid construction. Once a coal house, merchants inn and concert venue. Really well preserved and has a nice little museum at the back that's free to use. Love the door arch.
