There is nothing like some souvenirs from Granada as a momento to reminisce your visit to one part of this amazing Andalusia region.
The perfect place to get your souvenirs from Granada is none other than Alcaiceria. Initially, Alcaiceria is an area of streets between Plaza Nueva and Plaza Bib-Rambla full with vendors selling silks, spices and many other precious stuffs being traded.
But now, what’s left is only a small road called as Calle Alcaiceria stretching from Calle Reyes Catolicos to Cathedral. Still, this small road is so breathtaking that we strolled a few times just to enjoy our moments there. Magnificent architecture!
Alcaiceria is the great bazaar of Granada and it is a place full of shops selling souvenirs from Granada either handmade or not. We bought our Granada fridge magnets here; three for five euros. I was eyeing for a beautiful glass lamp something like a Moroccan lamp but it was a bit expensive and fragile for our trip back home.
As we stayed at Los Tilos Hotel, Alcaiceria was just right under our nose. Literally speaking..hehehe..walking distance is about less than a minute.
We bought te de granada tea, rooibos canabis tea and also miel con almendras (honey with almond) in total of 12 euros. I especially love the smell of te de granada and could not wait to try!!
This tea shops selling various types of infused tea reminded me of my good friend Min Young so much!! She will definitely love these teas and also appreciate Granada as I did. I miss you Min Young..sarang hae!!
Lastly, not to forget was to get both of our names written in Arabic Caligraphy by a Moroccan artisan on the way to Granada Cathedral. Small for 1 euro and big for 2 euros but we combined our names in one card hence we were charged 3 euros. Fair enough. ^^
