This guidebook to walking in Andalucía captures the very essence of this most evocative part of Spain. An ever-changing landscape awaits your discovery whether you are driving or hiking — from the ‘white villages’ and ancient towns to the never-ending sierras, razor-sharp gorges and gentle verdant valleys.
Since many people will explore Andalucía by car, most of the treks are circular.

The guide book covers areas up to two hours’ drive both north and south of Malaga. We spent a week in Competa, one hour northwest of Malaga, and used the guide for touring and walks. The car tours are easy to follow and informative. The walking details are excellent. (Peterkm, Amazon)
