Visiting Tips

Shopping in Granada

Plaza Bib-Ramblla



Note: At times this place gets crammed with tourist. While I didn't encounter any pickpockets here, this looks like a place you might need to watch your valuables.

Just southeast of the cathedral near the Plaza Bib-Ramblla is a catacomb of touristware shops. Here is the place to buy inlaid chess boards and chess pieces of every imaginable style. You will also find fans, clothing, jewelry and other decorative items aplenty.

On my first visit to Granada I found booksellers east of the Puerta Real. During the day their stalls look like large tin boxes lining the plaza. But come night, the sides pop up and collectively these tin boxes become one large meandering bookshop. On my second visit to Granada, to my delight, a large outdoor market was in progress from the Puerta Real to the Plaza de Mariana Pineda. There were a lot of homemade ceramics, fountains for the yard, craft show material and some imported items from Africa.
A number of tourist shops are also located outside the gate to the Alhambra, along the Cuesta de Gomerez.

Spanish food, Ceramics and Wine: Chorizo sausage, jamon, saffron, Manchego cheese, chocolate, sherry, red/white wines, and hand-painted and enameled ceramics are just a few of the items you can buy here (all from Spain).
