Plan: Southern Spain roadtrip

Posted by daveb on January 29th, 2008

At the end of this month, we’re renting a car to undertake a ten day roadtrip around the Andalucia region of this fine country. We’ll start off with a night in the Troglodyte Cave Hotel in Guardix, near to the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountain range. A short drive away we’ll find the beautiful city of Granada, which hosts Spain’s most visited tourist site, the Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens. The mountains form the backdrop to the city, so it should be a great opportunity to get some scenic piccies.

A couple of a hundred kilometres west will put us into the town of Arcos de la Frontera and a Cortijo country ranch for a relaxing day. Next the coast, in the form of Cadiz in which the world’s third biggest street carnival (after Rio de Janeiro and somewhere else) will be in full swing. Bless the lady at the youth hostel who suggested that, as a thirty-something, I might like to book myself into a hotel instead as the youths of today can make a bit of a racket under the influence of alcohol… (I took her advice!)

Then begins the north-easterly loop back to our east coast apartment, but not without stopping for a few days in Seville, which will likely be the pinnacle of our mini-trip — everyone that we’ve spoken to raves about this place.

Nearly home, but not without a stopover in Cordoba, with it’s mesquita. Finally a fairly long drive (400km in the cheapest, most underpowered hire-car we could get) right through, or maybe I should say over, the Sierra del Segura mountain range, before get back to our apartment in Los Alcazares to make a brew.

I’ve updated our planned route map, if you’d like to see.
