In a narrow little alleyway right near the Cathedral in Granada is the colorful and historical Mercado de Artisanía, or Artisan's Market. Any kitschy little Spanish souvenir you might like will probably be at its lowest price here, but you'll also find some very unique Moroccan-inspired gifts such as textiles, lamps, tea sets, rugs, and even hookahs:
|Don't worry, your kids won't know what these are.|
|Tea for sale.|
|I love this picture of my daughter in this bright shop!|
Veer off the main alley to see shady little squares where local Granadans live in their beautifully tiled buildings:
The Mercado de Artesanía was an old Moorish silk market for centuries, where the Moors were granted permission to make and sell silks even after the fall of Granada in the 15th century. In 1843, however, the market was destroyed by a fire and rebuilt to its present state.
|"Which one would you choose?" my daughter asks my son.|
