We ended up here to pick up our tickets to Al Hambra, its interesting how this building remains, but its a historical gem. I'd say its less and hour long visit if you do the museum

Great option to pick up your Alhambra tickets before the visit, Ticketmaster machine was easy to use, but they also had a guy working there to help anyone if unsure. On the plus side, the place itself is also really pretty!

This was originally a caravanserai, then converted into a coal storage facility. Today it houses some offices and shops, and is a place where you can pick up your Alhambra tickets (if you purchased them online).
