This is recommended in my guidebook, so I went to check it out. According to information, it is the only surviving Nasrid-era merchant inn/warehouse/market preserved in the entire Iberian Peninsula. There is a beautiful horseshoe arch at the entrance and inside is a courtyard with a fountain and grape vines growing on the stone pillars. I went in the evening (free entry), and it's very atmospheric with the lighting.
There are concerts held in courtyard. It would be nice to attend one there.

Thank A Y

We visited this place as a part of the free walking tour of Granada. Grape plants provide shade and the water tank used to see water from 2 different rivers in Granada. The rooms now has public offices.

Interesting Moorish building once used as a theatre and the inner courtyard enclosed with grapevines is the only surviving merchant inn from the famous silk road days .

This is a public place with a nice patio with a Haman (arabic fountain). It is close-by the cathedral of Granada. It is worth it the visit and walk about the building to discover Granada
