I think my expectations were too high because I was a little disappointed. Historically, this was a grand bazaar, but there’s nothing of the original structure and the stalls were very repetitive. Once we’d looked at a few, we felt we had seen most of what was on offer and there was not a lot of incentive to venture into more. We had hoped to kill half an hour or so browsing before the bars along Calle Navas started opening but in fact we were probably only here for for 10 or 15 minutes. I’d still recommend having a wander through the market because it’s easy to get to so you don’t have to go out of your way (it’s right by the cathedral). It’s also colourful, especially if you walk through in the evening like we did. It has something of the look of Aladdin’s cave about it and the vendors are not pushy so you can look without the risk of being cornered. The best things we saw were leather slippers and loose drawstring cotton pants. Apart from this, there’s a lot of pretty much identical lamps, leather bags and satchels, coin purses, scarves and standard tourist souvenirs like magnets and coasters with Alhambra tile patterns. It’s not a bad place if you are with kids who can enjoy picking out souvenirs and trinkets but I thought there was a much better range in the shops around the Albayzin area on the way up to the San Nicolas look-out.

A beautiful open market, sited in a couple of little alleys, full of vendors selling dresses, lamps, handmade objects. All stuff of doubtful utility but at the end of the day, it's all about walking in and remaining fascinated by the lights, the colours and the maroccan atmosphere. A must see in Grenada.

We visited Alcaiceria as we happened to stumble across it while walking around the streets of the city. There is a large range of shops or stalls around. They all sell lots of different little items which visitors may or may not like, but many actually do buy them. We did not buy anything but we walked through and had a look. Depends on one's taste and interest whether they look or buy, or both!

The Alcaiceria may be a huge souvenir now and not a silk market but I had a lot of fun. I enjoyed shopping the colorful stalls and I bought a pair of harem pants.

It is certainly much smaller than the souks in Marrakech but the sneaks, sights and sounds make you feel like you are in Aladdin’s marketplace. It’s a lot of Knick knacks but there are some great wood shoppes and lamp stalls. It is certainly worth a stroll.
