The area known as Alcaicería used to be the Great Bazaar of Granada. Back in the glory days, the Alcaicería was home to over 200 shops. Nowadays, the shops are reduced to Calle Alcaiceria and many of them seem to be shut during low season,...More

It's a nice area to walk around, seeing a "little Arabia" in Granada. Most of the shops are souvenir shops for tourist. I was not really interested in the shops but the architecture. It's not far from the cathedral.

Alcaiceria is on the site of the old camel market and situated next to the cathedral. Great if you're looking for souvenirs and you like these highly touristic places, otherwise take a glance and pass on to something more authentic.

This is the old Arab bazaar and still retains that aesthetic. Many shops, mostly selling tourist souvenirs and other items with an Arabian flavour. It's right next to the Cathedral and worthwhile to stroll through.

It has the same stuff as Calle Calderia Nueve and isn't very interesting. Worth a quick look if you're in the vicinity but not much more.

Narrow, crowded streets. Lots of tourists. Vendors selling leather goods and clothing spices, crafts. Why wouldn’t you want to visit? It has been like this for centuries.

Fun place to peruse. If u want to buy inexpensive souvenirs, this is the place. We saw many things in Alcaiceria that were in Alhambra. Of course, there are many items in Alcaiceria that are not handpainted, not real metal or precious stones, but you...More

Alcaiceria houses some 200 shops that cater for most tourists shopping needs. The prices were also reasonable compared to the tourist shops in al bacin. It is a short distance (5mins) walk from the fountains at Plaza Isabel Católica which is the central part of...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.
