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

It’s huge huge like in Istanbul but it’s a nice experience. I bought a sweatshirt and a knife. It didn’t take long and it right by the church.

Next to the Cathedral this is an interesting little market consisting of narrow streets and quaint little shops displaying their colourful murchendise. Despite the passage of time the Moorish/Arab influence is evident. You can purchase glass ornaments, leather goods, clothes, ceramics, jewellery and spices. Although...More

Great vibes at this traditional market. If you are looking for souvenirs and traditional Andalucían items, you will definitely find it in Alcaiceria.

We stayed a week in Granada & wandered through this area frequently soaking up the Moorish influence. It’s charming with its very narrow alleys packed with all sorts of trinkets! Beware of stopping to look at anything for too long as the shop owners do...More

This area of market like stalls and shops is definitely worth a wander through. Some it is a bit tacky and touristy, but there are some really lovely things there too. Lots of leather, ceramics, lamps and scarves. Good central location near the cathedral.

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.
