Casa de Zafra is a lovely house and it would have been a really grand old house in its heyday. Its Moorish architecture is very evident throughout and you can sense the history inside. However after you have seen the Alhambra nothing else will do! This house does not really have much to offer. You can visit if you have nothing better to do.

There are a number of 14/15th century casas to visit dotted around the Albaicin. Of the three I visited, this had by far the best interior (Casa Morisca De Horno De Oro is a complete waste of time and money, having been stripped bare. Casas Del Chapiz has little inside to see, but a pretty terrace garden with amazing views).

Only takes around half an hour to see everything, but it's priced accordingly. Information boards tell you about the Albaicin's history in both Spanish and English.

Pretty interior built around a reflective pool courtyard.

Of the Dobla de Oro sites on the river side of the Albaicin, though, the Banuelo is the best to see, and VERY easily missed. It's an exquisitely preserved/restored bathhouse with screens showing beautiful interactive 3D models of how the rooms would have looked when new.

A visit here was included in our Granada Pass, so we went in. The museum is clean and modern, but the reason for the three-star "average" rating is that there just isn't very much to see. Pop inside to view the courtyard and take a look at the few items on display if you are nearby, but I wouldn't make this a prime destination in a city with so many other attractions.

This is a wonderful example of an old Moorish house in the heart of Albaicin. It is beautifully restored and set around a courtyard in typical Moorish style. Entrance is included with the Granada card, otherwise it only costs a few Euros.

This is a beautifully restored house and features a courtyard with a fountains (like a miniature fountain from Alhambra). Most of the information is in Spanish, but there's some English. It looks like the purpose of the house is to showcase a typical well to do house in Andalusia and the neighborhood of Albaicín. There's a video showing some of the highlights of the Albaicín like lookout points.

It's free, so worth seeing.

Visited this delightful casa as part of a walking tour of Granada. It was built during the Nasrid period for a wealthy merchant. It is now an Interpretive centre for the Albaycin area and designated UNESO site. A beautiful restored Moorish style home. The upper levels of casa affords a magnificent view of the Alhambra complex..

the casa de Zafra was a place where I expected to see a lot of artifacts, but although there wasn´t much pottery, or decorative pieces on property, the layout of the building was amazing. the rooms are spacious for their purpose, and well-ventilated. What I found most amazing was how the brick was layed out through out the building. I expected some of the floors to be uneven through wear and tear, but they seemed to be the original foundation of the site.

This ancient house has been beautifully restored and offers the tourist a valuable insight into the Albaicin area of Granada. If at all possible go there before venturing among its labyrinthine streets and you will be able to look at everything from an informed perspective. Be sure to pop into the audio visual room as part of your visit.
This place is definitely worth seeking out...and it's FREE !

Purchased as part of a ticket that allowed access to the Arab Baths (and others) for 5 Euros and just a short walk beyond the Baths. This is a small museum / Exhibition Space within a refurbished 13/14th century house in the old muslim area. Very few people were there when we visited. THe rooms exhibited series of photographs which had nothing to do with the rooms or building despite being good photos. Worth a visit if you have time and are in the area.

This small museum is relatively modest by Granada standards. But it gives a good image of life among the Arabs during their dominance of this part of Spain. It is located in the old Muslim quarter of Granada which is well worth visiting.
