This is the only remaining caravanserai left in Granada. The original entrance is still there and the interior of the building is worth a quick look. It only takes a few minutes to see the whole thing so if you pass by it is definitely...More

Hidden off the main road, the entrance is stunning Arabic architecture. The interior courtyard is bare but lucky to survive at all. A rare example of an urban caravanserai providing safe storage and accommodation for traders in centuries past. Just sit and enjoy the peace...More

The structure itself is worth seeing and in particular the magnificent archway. At the back is a small (badly signposted) museum which is excellent, in particular the staff here are hugely knowledgeable and are most pleased to explain the pieces there and the history. Marvelous.

Maybe it doesn’t sign itself very well but the fascinating and user-friendly museum just inside the Tourist Info door is a must-go and do. The whole building’s quite interesting too.

The inner courtyard is actually quite ugly. The only redeeming feature of this historic place is the Morrish style archway in the entrance. HIstorically interesting as this used to be where they traded grain and in later years coal.
