Discover a part of Spain that can feel more African than European, where Roman, Moorish and Christian rulers have all left their mark. These three classic cities are home to some spectacular, world-renowned sights: the romantic, unmissable Alhambra in Granada: Seville's Cathedral with its Giralda tower and nearby Royal Palace; and Cordoba's great mosque, La Mezquita, alongside the labyrinthine Jewish quarter. Watch Gypsies dance authentic flamenco in the caves of Sacromonte, or toreros parading their skill in El Maestranza, the Cathedral of Bullfighting. Examine the complex geometry of the vivid azulejo tiles lining courtyards and patios. Take the sol y nieve challenge by skiing in the Sierra Nevada and swimming in the sea on the same day. And, if you're squeamish, be sure to check this book before ordering local specialties such as revoltillos and tortilla Sacromonte.
This guide contains: practical travel advice; 250 hand-picked places to stay; 150 restaurants, bars & cafes; detailed maps & site plans; food & drink advice with a practical menu reader; lively fiestas, including Seville's famous Feria; nightlife, from flamenco to opera.
