  • I very much like this area..... tightly packed with Morrish trinkets and "what nots".... probably as close as I will ever get to being in Morocco or similar. Lots of interesting stalls and even with a...  more »
  • Originally, Alaiceria was the Grand bazaar of Granada and extended on various roads. The bazaar has survived the Christian conquest of the city but was destroyed and rebuilt a century ago. Today it remains only la Calle Alcaiceria but is no longer the place of trade in spices and silk but of crafts for the tourists.

  • Street, and actually in full stalls with a variety of things. The proverbial SOAP and canned tomatoes, you can feel a bit like in Istanbul, on their Indoor Bazaar.

  • 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.
  • Historic silk market but now mainly selling tourist wares not even made in Spain. Still worth a look.
  • This is a small, cute area with shops selling souvenirs to tourists. It has a great deal of Moraccan and Turkish goods, but few Spanish. It is a refurbished sure if the silk markets of old. Be prepared to bargain a bit!
  • Very poor remnants of an ancient bazaar. Cheap tat sold in pseudo bazaar stores, disappointing that a once bustling, exotic mix of people and traders is now reduced to a few corridors of tourist traps.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
