For millennia southern Spain has been perceived as a promised land. From Phoenician traders to Moorish invaders to today's northern European occupiers of the Costa del Sol, this extraordinarily varied region has offered the lure of beaches and mountains, classic cities and cutesy villages, magnificent deserts, vast forests and fertile plains - and a balmy climate that is the envy of the rest of the continent. Time Out Andalucia presents the full picture of this country within a province, giving an insider's view of its cultural and natural riches, but not shrinking from telling it like it is when confronting the environmental and aesthetic disasters that have afflicted much of the coastline. Time Out's expertise in city guides is fully exploited in the in-depth coverage of Andalucia's incomparable cities - light-hearted Malaga, wistful Cadiz, regal Cordoba, grave Granada and joyous Sevilla. Yet the guide also includes unparalleled coverage of Andalucia's lesser-known corners, such as the provinces of Almeria, Jaen and Huelva.
