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.
