We started the visit from Corral del carbon in the early morning where we changed the ticket online with what we used to visit different places. In the corral you enter the courtyard, it is observed for a few minutes (the corral is on two floors whose second not open) and away you go without seeing anything to shout about. Bella just the front door giving access to the monument. According to me useless to go to waste time even though it is the oldest Arab monument of Spain.show original

Interesting place but there's not much to see. Free. The best thing in here: If you bought Alhambra tickets in advance, you can exchange your voucher for real tickets in a cabin located here. Very practical.
The Corral del Carbón is one of the few examples of public buildings dating from the Moorish period to have survived to the current day. It was erected at the beginning of the 14th century, under the rule of the Nasrid dynasty, and it was part of the original structure of the moorish medina. It was originally a corn exchange and as an inn for visiting traders and merchants. After The Reconquest, it was used by coal merchants and its name changed to the Corral de Carbón. Later, in the 16th century, it was used as an open-air comedy theatre. Today, it still serves as a place of entertainment - occasionally theatre and flamenco concerts are held in the courtyard. It also houses the Provincial Delegation of Culture of the Junta de Andalucía and the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada.1

Juancarlos gportilloThe only preserved nazari Alhondiga. It is a beautiful place for your patio with plants of cliffs and the history that is. If you have the opportunity to see some show in summer there, it is much worth.show original
