Shopping in Almunecar

The arts and crafts in the area have a lot of tradition behind them. Some of the more popular crafts are the ceramics (mostly with a Moroccan influence), leather making, jewelry and the traditional Spanish guitar.

Spanish Guitars

Much time and passion goes into the making of an exceptional flamenco guitar so this craft has understandably developed into an art form over the years. The Spanish love their music and the guitar has a very special place in the hearts of most Spaniards; especially because of the long tradition of Flamenco in the country. Because of the guitars popularity in the Costa Tropical, there are several shops here that are dedicated to this art alone. One of the Province Houses in Manjuelo Park sells these guitars.
