Review

'The balance of infectious enthusiasm and solid practicality should appeal to first-timers and experienced travellers alike’ -- Michael Palin

‘Bursting with practical information and in-depth knowledge, Cadogan Guides also make a cracking good read.’ -- The Times

‘Cadogan are the pick of the bunch’ -- Daily Telegraph

‘It’s difficult to praise the Cadogan books too highly...good writing, amusing comment and invaluable advice’ -- The Independent

‘Overall the top marks go to Cadogan’ -- BBC Radio 4 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Three dazzling cities, with remarkable stories to tell. Granada, nestled at the foothills of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, drenched in the sweet melancholy of the lost world of al-Andalus and glorying in the drama of the Alhambra. Showy Seville, home of roses and passion, Carmen, bulls and flamenco, where you can pick oranges from the trees and eat tapas in the city that invented them. Cordoba, with its Mezquita, ancient Jewish quarter and twisting maze of white alleys, a haven of quietness and dignified calm. Cadogan's essential guide is ideal for a short break or a longer stay in these three great cities of southern Spain, where the stuff of civilization merges delightfully into the pleasures of everyday life.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; stunning color photography; top shops and local markets. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 212 pages, color photos, maps)

HASH(0x9dd952e8) out of 5 stars Excellent Companion to Thicker Guidebooks Jan. 10 2010
By Xiomara Paredes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We purchased an inexpensive earlier edition of this Andalusia-focused text to accompany the thicker Frommer and Steve's Spain guidebooks and we were pleasantly surprised. The Cadogan guide provides a different point of view, with more historical and cultural comment and much less practical information (i.e. hotel and restaurant reviews). As a thin volume, we carried Cadogan with us, until I foolishly dropped the book from my shoulder bag in Triana (Sevilla) - luckily near the end of our ten-day intinerary through Cordoba, Granada and Sevilla. I wanted to cry! As mentioned, we bought the slightly outdated previous additional for a few dollars, since we were relying on the current other guides to give us the up-to-the-minute practical info. This strategy worked perfectly. I recommend that any traveler to these Andalusian cities, particularly those on a first visit, purchase this guide as a good supplement to the other better-known guidebooks, whether you carry it to Spain, or not.
