Beautiful conserved building. Not so crowed at the time I visited. Next time I would get a walking tour guide to understand more details about this wonderful city.

Formerly an old warehouse, the place now is restored and accessible for free. Just walk in and enjoy the simple architecture. It feels like a small oasis within the city.

We entered the courtyard of this nice place to find the office to validate our earlier printed tickets for the Alhambra.. walked a bit around it, but comparing to the other sites in Granada it doesn't offer anything special ...

The architecture of this building is quite unusual and there is a large patio in its middle. One can pick up Alhambra tickets here at the Ticketmaster machine there. The site could be made attractive if they added potted plants and flowers. Today it looks bare.

When we went in search for the office to validate our Alhambra passes,we did not expect the ticket office to be located in this interesting courtyard. We later revisited this area on a walking tour and discovered that this was one of the oldest Arab structure of this kind in Spain. It was constructed some time in the 14th century... More

If getting your tx for the Alhambra you need to walk in/through the courtyard. Its really very pretty but you can take it all in in under 10 minutes. Im not sure I woulld go out of my way to see it but if anywhere near Old Town, Plaza Nueva, Albayzin you are right by it so might as well... More

Ok, it is just a square where they left their camels, but it is lovely with a fountain in the center and moorish architecture. The huge vines growing up the columns and the texture of the ground make for an interesting visit. No charge.

It was free to enter and see the courtyard. Nothing too exciting to see really. Reason we came was to get our Alhambra tickets we purchased online.

This is an interesting Moorish building to visit in itself but provides a great venue for "Los Veranos del Corral" - festival of flamenco and theatre in July/August. We saw flamenco dancers - duo Antonio Perujo y Silvia Perujo. They were brilliant and the setting was fantastic with the lighting highlighting the building and the vines growing. You could buy...
