Wondering around shops influenced by the North African nation, felt out of place and not if I am in Spain. Although I like the spice shops.

The Alcaiceria is not only a historical place but also the most recommended souvenir shopping place in Granada. Historically, it is a part of Albaicin, and it has strong influence from the Islamic religion. When you walk around the area, beware of the Gypsy female...More

We spent a few hours looking for souvenirs in the market with our kids. We had a nice time and a good experience picking up some little souvenirs of our trip.

Nice shopping. Nice live music by street performers. They like to negotiate and it can be fun. I bypassed some items thinking I could by them online but I should have bought them there because their prices are better.

This is no way near as spectacular as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul but it is fun to wander the stalls and browse through the items. Most seemed to be imported from Asia so look at the labels carefully. Most of the shops also seemed...More

This was once an Arab market place kind of like the Great Bazaar of Granada and much bigger than today´s version. Today this covered market place is located around the Calle Alcaiceria. It's very interesting to walk around for a while mostly because of the...More

Sure, it’s touristy, but there are lots of colorful things to look at. The market is apparently a shell of what it once was, but it still has a feel of the Moorish market that was once here, and one’s imagination can conjure up the...More

Possibly. You may have to look hard for authentic Moroccan jewelry, though. Much of what is in shops is designed for tourists. I'd find a quality jeweler and ask for a reference to a good source.
