Look up at the beautifully decorated horseshoe arch as you enter the courtyard of this old Moorish inn. It was built in the 1350s as accommodation for merchants who were bringing their wares to sell in the adjacent market area, or Alcaicería, which you can still see, in a much restored version, on the other side of Calle Reyes Católicos. The merchants used to store their goods on the upper floors, which have lovely wooden galleries leading round them, and sleep on the ground floor. The building is remarkably well preserved seeing as it's been put to so many uses over the years. As well as an inn, it's been a theatre and a coal yard and it now houses a tourist information office and the ticket office for the International Music and Dance Festival. Admission is free.
