This is the only Alhóndiga (public building for the buying and selling of wheat) that survives out of three that are known to have existed in Granada. It was built in the early 14th century and used to be an inn for merchants.
The upper floor was used for accommodation and the lower floor as a stable and for storage purposes. The pointed horseshoe arch is decorated with typical Moorish honeycomb work and epigraphic motifs, which are of particular interest.
The building has been used for a number of different purposes throughout the years: as a theatre in the 14th century, a residential block in the 16th century, and a coal warehouse in the 18th century.
The building is currently used as offices for various private companies and public entities.
