Hidden off the main road, the entrance is stunning Arabic architecture. The interior courtyard is bare but lucky to survive at all. A rare example of an urban caravanserai providing safe storage and accommodation for traders in centuries past. Just sit and enjoy the peace...More

The structure itself is worth seeing and in particular the magnificent archway. At the back is a small (badly signposted) museum which is excellent, in particular the staff here are hugely knowledgeable and are most pleased to explain the pieces there and the history. Marvelous.

Maybe it doesn’t sign itself very well but the fascinating and user-friendly museum just inside the Tourist Info door is a must-go and do. The whole building’s quite interesting too.

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

As you enter the courtyard look across to the right hand corner and you will find the information centre. It has not got a prominent sign and would be easy to miss. Once inside there is an informative film about the history of Granada with...More
