"Old Arab Silk Market"

This network of narrow streets laid out in a grid was originally built as an Arab bazaar where raw silk was bought and sold. Mule trains brought the raw material and silk garments down from the mountainous Alpujarras where the silk worms fed on mulberry leaves. The producers often stayed overnight in the nearby Corral del Carbón (Moorish Inn) before taking their wares to market. The market burned down in 1843 and was rebuilt two years later maintaining all the original features like the horseshoe arches and the typical Moorish-style twin windows. It's still a market of sorts although it's mainly tourist souvenirs and knick-knacks for sale.
