Please share your favorite websites for researching Andalucia
 
My husband is ready to do his style of research for our trip to Andalucia. I use travel books and Fodors and start searching early, as soon as I have an idea of where we will go. Ron likes to wait until the date is closer and then go online to search websites--ones with lots of photos ;;) We leave in mid-March so he is ready to do his part in the travel planning!!

Could you suggest the websites you found most helpful (hopefully with plenty of photos) ;;) for Andalucia in general and also specific to Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Jerez, Ronda and Costa del Sol (we are staying near Mijas but I thought it might be too small of a town to have much specific information).

Thank you for any sites you can suggest. Deborah

I use Google to find things. I try and search in the local language too. So say Mijas- España will turn up sometime different to Mijas- Spain.
I also find in Spain that a lot of Ayuntamiento websites offer far more information than some tourist websites do.

Jerez, with some suggested guided tours. A couple of them seem to be quite interesting: http://www.andaluciaevents.eu/www/index.php/en

Costa del Sol: http://www.visitcostadelsol.com/

And you should visit Málaga city itself, fabulous, genuine and very underrated:

"Picasso's city of hidden treasures": http://www.telegraph.co.uk/journalis...pleasures.html

Have dinner/tapas at Mesón de Cervantes in the center of Málaga: http://elmesondecervantes.com/

You might look at The Olive Press, an English language newspaper for Andalucia.
