El Corral del Carbón es un edificio del siglo XIV situado en la ciudad española de Granada, en la comunidad autónoma de Andalucía. Es la única alhóndiga nazarí conservada en su integridad en la península ibérica.
An old Inn, that is now an empty courtyard, but with a small museum describing the history of Granada in one corner. This is well with a visit, although it will only take you 45 minutes at most to see everything (and less if you don't watch the film!). Served as a good introduction to the town's history and helped set some of the other sites into context.
The only surviving merchant inn from the famous silk road. Don't forget to visit the Andalusian legacy museum on the ground floor in the Corral del Carbon, it is free and informative about the life and the people of historic Andalucía.
I really liked Grenada and all its offerings, but there are so many tourists! Even in winter. . .Corral del Carbon is one of the more tranquil sites to visit, where we were able to catch our breath. Not spectacular like the Alhambra, but calm and charming nonetheless.
This is where you get Alhambra tickets! Tranquil historic place like most everything in Granada. Gracious staff. We waited maybe 10 minutes in line for tickets. But still reserved months in advance online. It is best to reserve before arriving in Granada. Then go to Corral del Carbon. We had no problems. Just show receipt at Corral del Carbon and credit card used for online purchase. Voila! Alhambra tickets in hand!
Very friendly staff on the exhibit. The lady showed us an astrolabe, books, local food "tapas" places. And chat with us about the Moorish influence on Spain. You can tell she loves history. You can get the ALHAMBRA tickets and save yourself a line.
It's an interesting place. It's different like the other patios and buildings in the city. But there are not many options to do or see. Just you can take a short walk around. It would be a pity to miss it because the entrance is free of charge!
Had a very good time with friends there. Good for history and nature interested people.
Very special building with empty courtyard and differentieel floors. In one of the corners you will find an interesting small museum where you can learn everthing about thé town and thé Alambra complex.
What a lovely bit of moorish history. Well worth the visit. Its a short visit, so take lots of photos.
typical arabic construction. beside you have tipical desserts from Granada. Is a quick visit.
