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).

Somehow, this doesn't seem like a tourist destination, especially in a city so full of amazing history and architecture. Not worth going out of your way to see.
