Overview

Andalusia, the region of southern Spain made famous by its fervor for flamenco, bullfighting, and its Moorish heritage, has long been a destination for travelers and historians alike. This accessible and richly illustrated volume provides a clear and comprehensive account of those aspects of Andalusian history and culture that have shaped its essential character.

Offering detailed information on architectural treasures such as the Alhambra in Granada, the Great Mosque in Córdoba, and the Moorish palaces of the Alcàzar in Seville, as well as vibrant portraits of the origin and development of flamenco dance and the evolution of the bullfight, Gwynne Edwards captures the heart and soul of a region shaped by the events of the twentieth century, yet still vibrantly aware of its own history.
