Souvenirs to buy in Granada
These are works of art made in Granada since Moorish times. These wooden boxes are inlaid with ivory (in olden times), colored wood, and stones. The geometric patterns are a treat to look at and the boxes are not expensive. There are very few marquetry workshops left in Granada; now most of these boxes are made in nearby Morocco to the south of Spain.
Granada guitars are very popular as it is said that best guitar-makers in the world can be found in Granada mainly in El Realejo area. Handmade guitars can be very expensive. You can go to Gil de Avalle, Plaza Realejo for the best deal.
Post the Christian reconquest, the Spanish took over Moorish looms and developed a distinct rug design called Jarapas. You can find many looms still at Las Alpujarras village near Sierra Nevada mountains.
Granadas (pomegranate) are all over the city. You will find them adorning the designs of Jewelry and Fajalauza ceramics. Take home a granada-inspired Fajalauza ceramic mug.
When you go to Alhambra make sure to find a few minutes to browse the gift shop there in the complex; they have very good souvenirs too. And in Caldereria Nueva smell the perfumes at Alquímia Pervane.
