After two trips in one week there are plenty more photos
of Córdoba, including some from Dave. An hour and
a half from Seville, Córdoba is a great day trip.
or two from Sevilla, Cádiz is known as Europe's oldest
city. A choice for many visiting the Atlantic coast, it
offers a nice alternative to the Mediterranean beaches as
well as a great day trip.
An little over an hour from Sevilla, Conil is a popular
spot for tourists. Nearby you can visit a number of smaller
towns and intersting beaches as well.
An hour and a half by bus, Carmona is perhaps the most popular
day trip from Sevilla. Roman and Arab history as well as
a quiet pueblo setting make it a great place to
get away from the city.
A 2-3 hour trip Málaga offers mountains and of course
the beach. A favorite spot for English speakers as well.
Many head to the nearby beaches of Torremolinos. I don't
have many pictures in this album - awaiting my return trip
to the city center to take more.
Trip to Jabugo
In search of holiday meats and cheeses we made our way to
Jabugo, with stops in Aracena and a few other towns along
Just outside of Marbella is this little expat mountain town,
where all the restaurants are good - try the lamb! - and
some of the "new locals" don't speak any Spanish!
(and Puerta Banus)
It's lifestyles of the rich and famous...Marbella has it's
reputation for a good reason, especially when you hit Puerta
Banus. But for the average person who wants to blow some
money on a hotel it's a great place to visit.
Just up the mountain from Fuengirola and another easy trip
from Marbella (where we just happened to be), Mijas is an
expat town which still retains the traditional style of
a pueblo blanco. And it's a great place to catch
a burro taxi.
One of the most famous pueblos in Andalucia, Ronda
attracts thousands of tourists a day to see the cliffs,
the bridge and of course Spain's oldest bullring. There's
also some good eating to be done as well as a slower pace
