Andalucia (8th ed.)
(Cadogan Guides USA)
Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls

5 1/2" x 8 1/4" • 344 pages • full-color photos • maps
ISBN 9781860113895 • paperback • $18.95

The Spain of matadors and mantillas, of parched sierras and the scent of orange blossom, is the Spain of Andalucía, the country’s southernmost province. But beyond the stereotypes of Carmen and castanets lies a region with a rich history and a culture to match. Julius Caesar, the emirs of Moorish al-Andalus, Columbus and Queen Isabel all left their mark on this land, the meeting point between Europe and Africa. Cadogan’s guide will take you from the rollicking costas to the tranquil courtyards of Cádiz, via the Moorish splendors of Granada, Córdoba and Sevilla. Along the way enjoy sherry-soaked fiestas and authentic flamenco, the drama of a bullfight or even a step into Africa. And, of course, nights in the gardens of Spain.

Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, Cadogan's inimitable writing duo, are widely acclaimed for their unique blend of eloquent, entertaining cultural comment and practical, discerning travel advice. To date, they have over 45 Cadogan guides to their name – regional guides to France, and series on Italy, Spain, Greece and Turkey. Dana's lifelong passion and talent for travel writing has been the subject of a feature spread in the Independent newspaper. The two have frequently worked on freelance articles for major travel magazines, as well as appearing on the BBC Radio Four program, "Excess Baggage."

"Perceptive, entertaining insights into history, art, culture and festivals" – Amazon.co.uk

"Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, guidebook writers par excellence." – Simon Calder, Independent

"Beautifully written, evocative and informative" – The Sunday Times

"Excellently written and bursting with character." – Holiday Which?  

"Overall the top marks go to Cadogan" – BBC Radio 4
