Alcaiceria Market

The Alcaiceria is the old Moorish silk market, which was the main market where the richest goods were bought and sold. Alcaiceria means the “house of Caesar”, because the Emperor Justinian granted the Moors permission to make and sell silks. In the past this section of the city was much bigger and was an independent town that was closed at night and had its own mosque and customs house. In 1843 it was destroyed by a fire and was rebuilt to the present state. Today the Alcaiceria has many small stores that mainly sell Arabic craftworks like traditional local painted ceramics (fajalauza), stained-glass lamps (granadino farolas), a broad variety of objects with wooden inlay (desks, chessboards, or trinket boxes), ethnic clothing, knick-knacks and souvenir memorabilia. The Alcaiceria mercadillo is a pretty affordable flea market (if you remember to haggle a bit before purchasing something) and it is the best place in Granada to find bargains. Many of these stores are owned by Moroccans and they have the best bargains, goods from all over the world. The Alcaiceria is located by the Cathedral.
