I went to this place on one of the free tours of the city. The history of the place is interesting, but it is not something I would brag about going to. It was good for the free tour or any other tour. If you...More

It's a simple place but that's why it's beautiful. Very close to the Cathedral and busy Granada streets, this is like a little quiet oasis from another time. Oh - and the Alhambra tickets would be convenient if the machines weren't all down when we...More

Interesting small museum and lovely architecture. Great for pictures. Only needs about 1 hour to visit.

This is of limited interest, the highlight being the entry archway. Perhaps more of a historical interest than aesthetic or architectural, especially compared with what else is on offer in Granada.

This is a mildly interesting plaza, but it's biggest draw is it is a convenient place to exchange your Alhambra pre-reserved voucher into an actual entry ticket. Doing this makes entering the Alhambra much easier and provides a lower, easier to walk to, entry point.

Despite the fact that, in less enlightened days, much of Granada's Moorish history was flattened in order to erect modern apartments, some beautiful buildings of past centuries still remain. One is Corral del Carbon, on Calle Mariana Pineda. Built in the 1330s, it is representative...More

This isn't a big attraction like the cathedral or alhambra, but it has an interesting role in the history of Granada, and all the free city tours bring people here.
