Alcaicería


Located near the Cathedral, the Alcaicería of Granada today is dedicated to the souvenir shops, which sells Granada craft. Haggling about the price is part of the tradition. The Alcaicería of Granada is a typical neighborhood of the Muslim culture, made up of narrow streets around the houses. The Grand Bazaar of Granada stretched from Plaza Nueva to the Plaza Bib-Rambla, at the very heart of Islamic Medina, near the mosque. Before it was a big bazaar where silk was manufactured and sold. Literally, Alcaicería means or "Caesar's household" or "the place of Caesar" in recognition of the Emperor Justinian who granted the Moors permission to sell silk.
