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.

30 min program about Mijas on Andalucian TV, part of a series of programmes about many Andalucian cities and towns with ten reasons for visiting (the program is called "10 razones"): http://alacarta.canalsur.es/televisi...laga/13485/139

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.
