Calle Calderia Nueva
Granada has one of the richest Arabic history’s in Spain, so if you want a gift that reflects this aspect of its legacy head to Calle Calderia Nueva, a mini-souk in the heart of the city. This fascinating little street winds its way up to Albaicín from the central thoroughfare of Calle Elvira and is lined with Arabic textile and ceramics shops selling items that make for perfect presents. Beautiful handmade rugs and throws, Moorish-style jewellery boxes, leather handbags, ornate chess sets, Arabic lanterns in all colours and sizes – it’s all here and prices are often negotiable, if you fancy practicing your haggling skills in Spanish or Arabic. You can also – if you feel it’s not too cheesy – get your name written in Arabic for a couple of euros.
