Guitars and Musical Instruments

The classic Spanish guitar and other instruments integral to flamenco

Music is an absolutely integral part of Granada's charm - above all flamenco, its vocal component, cante jondo, and the guitar, of which the Spanish are among the world's foremost maestros and artisans. In fact, many guitar aficionados come to Granada from all over the world expressly to buy the fine guitars crafted by workshops such as Casa Ferrer (, Calle Cristo de la Yedra 10) and Germán Pérez Barranco (Cuesta de Gómerez). If a guitar is a bit more than you had in mind, other musical mementos of Granada that are a bit more compact can be found in the Albaycín district at a shop called Francisco Vílchez Gallego (Calle José Alta 24), which sells castanets and the like.
