This small museum is relatively modest by Granada standards. But it gives a good image of life among the Arabs during their dominance of this part of Spain. It is located in the old Muslim quarter of Granada which is well worth visiting.

A lovely Arabic house to relax in after the chaos of the outside world of modern Granada. Gives you a great idea of how a well off Arabic family would have lived before the Conquest.

The house is an example of architecture and is free, so go and see it, you'll have also a good view of Alhambra from inside.

Well-worth a visit! It is one of the best-preserved examples of the Nasrid architecture in the heart of the Albayzin district.

This is a wonderful example of an old Moorish house in the heart of Albaicin. It is beautifully restored and set around a courtyard in typical Moorish style. Entrance is included with the Granada card, otherwise it only costs a few Euros.

Having been to the Nazrid Palace, you can understand this house as a derivative of that architecture, and it is interesting in that light. It is now more of a simple museum devoted to the history of Granada. We had a Granada card and the...More

This is an example of a typical Moorish house and has been restored. It's free to visit and quite easy to find, although it does involve walking through the narrow and winding Granadian streets. It's very interesting to see the typical house and courtyard design....More

I would not go too far out of the way to make this a must-stop destination. However, it is interesting to see what a more "ordinary" home looked like back in the day and if you are close it might be worth 30 minutes of...More
