It was built during the Nasrid reign before 1336, and his original name was "Al-Funduq al-Gidida" or New Alhóndiga. Located south of the Muslim city, next to the silk market or Alcaicería, to the souk of the Medina and to the Main Mosque, served as inn for merchants in transit, warehouse and wholesale market. A small bridge was called al-qantara al-yadída (new bridge) until 1501, and later puente del carbón or puente
or puente de los Curtidores (qantarat al-Dabbayin), located on the Darro River communicated the Alhóndiga with the souk. In general, as described Leopoldo Torres Balbás (Chronicles of Archaeology of Muslim Spain, XIX. Tomo 2. PP 235), this building responds to an Oriental model, but the decor and the details are distinctly Grenadian. Its ancestry can be traced from the Greek agoras, through the after the Roman horreum until Islamic times. The monumental cover comes from the eastern iwan, whose origins have been much discussed, and that is already in the Sassanian palaces. The transmission to the West would be through the Egypt, where the entrance portico opened by a large arch, vaulted with mocárabes, and at the bottom is the lintel door of access to the building, and a twin window above, is architectural layout very widespread.

On her next cruise, "Independence" had smooth sailing for about seven days when on 17 April she encountered the Mexican brigs-of-war "Vencedor
" and "Libertador" off the mouth of the Brazos River. The initial sighting of the two Mexican brigs was at about 5:30 am. Outgunned and outmanned, "Independence" fled up Brazos River for protection at the small riverside town of Velasco. The Mexican vessels pursued the Texans; eventually the two brigs came within cannon range several hours later at 9:30 am. "Vincedor del Alamo" of sixteen 8-pound guns and 140 men, sailed with "Libertador" of six 12-pound guns and one 18-pounder, crewed by about 100 men. "Independence" of eight guns total, raised her colors followed by "Libertador" which then fired the first broadside that had no effect. Shortly afterward "Independence" fired a broadside with her weather battery of one 9-pound gun, three 6-pound guns, and one pivot gun. For two hours, "Independence" continued up Brazos River with the Mexican brigs in close pursuit, occasionally stopping to fire on each other. By 11:30 am the Texans had reached Velasco; Captain Wheelwright had no choice but to fight to the end, apparently not being able to continue up the Brazos River any further. The final engagement took place right in front of the small Texan town and populace, including the Texas Secretary of the Navy Samuel Rhoads Fisher. The Mexicans not being far behind came within range and Captain Wheelwright ordered his men to engage once more. The shots managed to damage the main top-gallant mast of the "Libertador". After another broadside in "Libertador"s direction, two Mexicans lay dead and a few more were wounded aboard the brig-of-war. More shots damaged "Libertador"s foremast and knocked out one of her 12 pounders. However, these broadsides did not slow the Mexican ships; "Libertador" approached "Independence" head on while "Vincedor del Alamo" maneuvered around to "Independence"s other side. The two brigs quickly came within pistol shots range and both fired a mixture of cannon projectiles. This is when a ball smashed through "Independence"s quarter gallery wall and into the Texan captain, taking off three of his fingers on his right hand. Severely wounded and taken below, command of the schooner passed to Lieutenant John W. Taylor, who finished the last few moments of battle before receiving orders from Wheelwright to surrender. With this action, the battle was over.
