The Alcaiceria was an Arabic market place that was destroyed in 1843. Today, the intimate streets wind around a flood of shops that sell a range of souvenirs, locally made crafts, wooden furniture and décor and other collectibles. The granadino farolas (stained glass lamps) steal the show and make for the perfect gift for loved ones back home while the Alcaicerías stalls that sell ethnic clothes are a reminder of the market’s original shops that would sell silk.
Don’t forget to buy home-grown spices when at the market.

My first experience with arab market. I enjoyed, couple of small streets you feel like in Morocco, and than bang! Cathedral, usual European streets. Nice contrast
It's a lot of souvenirs from China. All the same prices. But was a nice walk. I Feld a bit back to my times in Tunesia. But people are less aggressive in selling their goods!
Great place in the old part of Granada
Great place to visit
Sadly disappointing. Was expecting something like the Moroccan or Turkish souks but sadly no comparison. A lot of duplicated tourist rubbish in every store.
