Description

In this masterly book, now in a revised and updated fourth edition, Michael Jacobs looks with fresh eyes at all the traditional delights of Andalucia while doing full justice to the lesser-known aspects of the region. He examines the underrated local food and drink, the extraordinarily varied natural scenery, the composers and writers who created the romantic myths and legends of the nineteenth century, the strange legacy of Lorca and the Spanish Civil War. Andalucia's Moorish remains, its outstanding prehistoric and classical heritage and its exuberant Renaissance and Baroque monuments make it one of the richest regions of Europe for the visitor. Nearly a hundred Andalucian villages and towns are described in the gazetteer, some of which - Seville, Granada, Cordoba and Cadiz - are as lovely and as haunting as anywhere in the world.
