We visited Alcaiceria as we happened to stumble across it while walking around the streets of the city. There is a large range of shops or stalls around. They all sell lots of different little items which visitors may or may not like, but many actually do buy them. We did not buy anything but we walked through and had a look. Depends on one's taste and interest whether they look or buy, or both!

Granada is full of winding alleyways, but none are quite as expressive as the Alcaicería. It's fascinating mix between market and maze and was once home to many Moorish Silk-weavers who brought their trade with them when they moved to the site some centuries ago. Today it functions primarily as a shopping district. My wife and I enjoyed the stroll around.

This area is well worth visiting. You can buy some great Moroccan lighting, throws and more here. Quite a few of the small units stock the same products. Some of Granada souvenirs are cheap tacky imports from China ! It is worth paying more for the genuine Andalucian article !

It took a really long time to find the entrance to the market which is actually right at the entrance of the Cathedral but in truth, I wish we hadn’t wasted our time. Every stall has exactly the same stuff as the previous stall with the exception of one or two that had spices. If you’ve been to Morocco, turkey or any country that has an authentic market, don’t waste your time here because you will be disappointed.

Surprisingly not very busy which made it all the more enjoyable. Wandering around the narrow bazaar-like passageways and peering in the numerous tat shops was an unexpected and diverting treat.

Guaranteed you’ll lose your sense of direction. Keep on exploring to find your way out.

Once the old Moorish silk market, and Granada's Grand Bazaar, it is today a street of many shops, some with locally made items.

Alcaiceria, is located downtown, near the Cathedral. It´s a real nice muslim market, with very narrow streets, totally rebuilt from a huge fire that happened in 1900. I was told that the name ALCAICERIA is a tribute to Ceasar that authorized the trade of silk to the Muslims in that area. Here you can buy really nice souvernirs and take lovely pictures since this area is like a labirinth. Sugestion: just wait for a FREE GUIDE ( young people, with a blue jacket and / or blue umbrella written FREE GUIDE, that are paid by the City Hall), and just go with one of them the time you want, since they all speak English, at least, and you get a free walking guided tour of this lovely site, as well all the downtown, if you want. At the end - not mandatory - tip the Guide. Quite interesting initiative from the City Hall !!:)

Beautiful little alleyways full of great items, good quality, some touristy stuff but hey! you are a tourist!
We bought a couple of gifts and took a bunch of pictures - and by the way - on a cold Sunday in February, most of the stalls were open and bustling.
Colors, smells, sounds ... a wonderful place!

The Alcaiceria was the market place of the Moors. Unfortunately the original was destroyed by fire and this is a replica. It has many Moroccon style souvenirs, but for a more authentic experience ditch the overprices stalls here and head for the Albayzin for some real atmosphere.

Located behind the Cathedral this market is clean and pleasant, especially in the morning when there are less crowds. All the items are nicely displayed. I’m not a shopper but I love these markets. You can haggle a bit on prices but they're already marked pretty low. I bought a pair of harem pants and scarf and wore them out - felt very Moorish.
