This tiny square located at the heart of the Alcaiceria, inside the streets of the old souk is charming. In Medieval Granada this was the commercial centre of the city, trading in silks spices and silverware. Located next to the Main mosque (now Catedral & Sagrario) and below the Madrasah (Koranic School) it’s easy to see how the city would have been in the 14th century.
Inside this small square we notice the typical Fajaluaza ceramics, blue and green pottery from Granada.
Just walking in this area feels like you are transported to Northern Africa as you wander underneath the archway into these narrow little streets.
The Alcaiceria is now a busy area in the centre of Granada selling leather goods, trinkets and small souvenirs. The streets are colourful and busy, an open street market just off Bib Rambla square.
