Best city for souvenir shopping? What is the local specialty

I'll be in Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Toledo and Madrid. When I go souvenir shopping, can I expect significantly better prices in any one of these cities? What is the particular souvenir specialty in Seville?

1. Re: Best city for souvenir shopping? What is the local specialty

sevillian pottery (from La Cartuja monastery or Triana) are highly regarded.

also some local products like iberian ham and other cold meats, olive oil, sevillian orange marmelade are nice.

saffron and paprika (both sweet and hot) are also local specialities.

anything related with flamenco could also be a good souvenir, for example a pair of castañuelas, or a more expensive thing like a flamenco dress, pair of shoes or a guitar.

Abanicos (hand made fans) are also widely popular and a good souvenir.

There are many souvenir shops selling some of these products. For more specialized things you'll have to go to specialised shops, like a pottery shop or a musical instruments shop.
