Kids ( ages 7 and 9) were utterly fascinated by this spot. Using the information in my next book on Spain, I told the kids of the travelers who would stop here on their journey along the silk road. They would tell stories around the campfire and rest with their camels for the night.

The entrance to the Corral del Carbon has a Moorish design. When one enters one sees a large patio with a large building around it. The building looks modern, so it does not go with the architecture of the doorway. The good thing is that it has survived over the centuries.

We spent much more time trying to locate the Corral de Carbon then we did actually looking at it (after we finally did locate it). The write-up in the tourism brochure made it sound really interesting ... not so. Now it seems to be used as government offices and the last thing they want is tourists wandering through their day. A few signs would help.

You do this on the classic historical walk around Granada. It was the caravansery, I gather. Nothing much to see here, so takes you about 3 minutes if it's open. But the neighborhood is definitely worth wandering, so since you're here, stop by.

I am so glad that I find it accidentally while wondering for the Granada Mosque. If you are interested in the 14th century daily living, this would fill in your interest. This building used as a motel for the merchants especially coal. Now, its a government office and will preserved. Unfortunately access to upper floors not allowed.
Entrance of the building still keeping the details of the Andulcian art with a well preserved wall art and writings.
