Fun shopping in the evening through one of the oldest parts of town. Although the shops are interesting and you will almost certainly be invited in to look at the goods you should also look up at the architecture as well. Lots of lively Middle East style restaurants here as well.

We visited here on an evening and have to say it was lovely, we had a drink in a bar and just watched the world go by. Made a change from all the high street shops was a pleasant change.

Good street with plenty of shops, some Moorish in style. Nice eateries and bars too. Try some of the textiles available and some glass wear too.

I was so lucky to find a essential oil and perfume maker on this street with lots of things I can't find anywhere else. It's a pleasant walk full of colorful things and the people are very nice

The street is quite colourful with clothes, jewelry and other merchandise. But unfortunately, if you've seen one shop, you've seen them all. All the shops sell pretty much the same thing.

A street full of artifacts from Morooco sold by moroocans in Granada! I don' t know what this has to do with Al-Andalus, but one just have to go along with it, I guess.

It's too bad all the stores offer pretty much the exact same thing. It's ok to check out but don't expect much.

If you like people watching this is a great area in Granada. The road is not that long, about a 10 minute walk from end to end but is the main route for people coming and going from Plaza Nueva to the Albaycin or the University areas. It is busy at all hours except early morning when nothing in Granada... More

Avoid. Festooned with 'world wide' tourist supplies. Sold as the 'old' area with the traditional ways.. Unable to agree. Dingy came to mind. Menus were repetitive. Walk through quickly…unless you have local knowledge as to where to drink and or eat I was hungry.
