Opinions about Corral del Carbon in Granada
Imagine what life was in Nasrid-era building
14th century building which was used for coal storage and as a lodging house for merchants. It is the only surviving Nasrid-era building of its type in Spain.

For me the best part is the entrance. You should stop there for a while to appreciate all the details of its decoration.

Once inside, there is not much to see, but you can imagine what life was like in that Alhóndiga in the Nasrid era. It is free and it takes little time to see it.
