Author:  David Baird

Publisher:  Santana Books

Accolades such as "...a most useful guide" (Sunday Telegraph), "Recommended reading" (Weekend Guardian) and "Disarmingly honest...highly commended" (Automobile Magazine USA) greeted publication of the first edition of Back Roads of southern Spain and this thoroughly revised and meticulously researched second edition is guaranteed a similar reception.

In 432 information-packed pages award-winning author David Baird covers 25 excursions to delightful and little known corners of southern Spain revealing:

  • the most interesting sights and corresponding visiting times;
  • local fiestas and the legends of historic villages;
  • places to eat, from hearty country fare to gourmet cuisine;
  • and interesting places to stay to suit every budget.

This guide is both practical and entertaining and makes a wholly worthy companion to the author's recently published and very well received East of Malaga which also takes the reader on a memorable voyage of discovery. Behind the crowded coast a fascinating world of sweeping vistas, remote communities and majestic mountains unfolds. Comprehensive maps provide the key to penetrating this world.
