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.

  • Wonderful marketplace just off the main streets of Granada, Spain. Lots of churches, stores, cafes, etc. Some street performers from time to time. Definitely worth a visit. Also, there is a tourist info office here and you can get info on a free walking tour of the city with a guide. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was available in English or Spanish. Try not to miss the tour or the marketplace.

  • Feels like you're in Morocco walking through the bazaars. Loads of shops selling more or less the same touristy stuff. It's nice to get a feel of the place even if don't intend to buy anything.

  • Atmospheric market with narrow alleyways and historic buildings. Various shops but most selling similar goods.

  • Funny way how to show Arabic bazar. In fact - just souvenirs and few leather bags. Compare to real arabic fair it's too clean and not noisy. But it belongs to Granada's history.

  • Historic silk market but now mainly selling tourist wares not even made in Spain. Still worth a look.
