A maze of narrow streets behind the Cathedral, full of various gifts - porcelain, clothes, jewellery and other interesting ones. Some shops may be a bit cheaper than others, you can bargain as well. The atmosphere here is really nice, so even if you are not planning to do any shopping just go there to have a walk around.

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.

I am not sure if one person owns all the small shops in this small area behind the Cathedral, but they all seem to sell exactly the same goods at exactly the same price. Very colourful, shops packed to the brim with all manner of goods from North Africa, but the same in every shop. Look in one and you... More

Walk through this narrow block near the Cathedral and get a feel for what it's like in ancient Arabic marketplaces. Lots of shops lined up with similar products, featuring teas, herbs, spices, scents, and clothing. The fun is in finding that unique item, one that you just might discover hidden among all the wares. Of course, feel free to bargain,... More

The Alcaiceria is a group of stores located beside the Cathedral, where one can buy many souvenirs at inexpensive prices. We went there and spent some time looking for merchandise.

There are interestin pieces to be found, however the stalls- shops repeat the goods in every shop which is disappointing. The goods cater for the tourist. The leather satchels are reasonable priced. The trinkets and jewellery that we saw do not do justice to what the Moroccans produce.

This may have been a real silk market at one time but today it is a place to buy cheap...not in price, but quality...souvenir trinkets. Waste of time.

This area is interesting to walk but most of the shops sell similar things! Moroccan style wears in variety of colors and sizes! We enjoyed walking and having a look around!

Picturesque neighbourhood, friendly shopkeepers, great little tea shops with arab sweetmeats. Loved it. Go early! Mass at 9.00 with choir of nuns in the church at the top of the street. Sit and sip a quiet cup of tea in the cool morning air. Shops start to open before 10. Gets very crowded by 11 o'clock. Walking distance from most... More

Been to lots of markets all around the world and always interesting. Bargain, and after a while it's a lot of the same, but if your done seeing the cathedral, still a nice place to,walk through.
