The Corral del Carbón or Coal House is a 14th-century monument and is the only Nasrid public house preserved in its entirety in the Iberian peninsula. There is no entry fee to this place and it is an antiquated structure with an intricately carved entrance,...More

Interesting Moorish building which was used as merchant's inn and store - more recently a coal store, hence the name. Museum inside - free - gives overview of the development of Granada from earliest times and puts the other historic areas into context. Sometimes used...More

The history of the Corral del Carbon is more interesting than the site is for viewing. Site isn't much to look at.

Interesting small museum and lovely architecture. Great for pictures. Only needs about 1 hour to visit.
