"Wish I was going with you... I'd hit every guitar maker in the area. Cordoba is the heart of the bull fighting industry so, even if you don't see an actual bull fight, you may find it interesting to visit some of the estancias that raise them. For Grenanda... just go shopping... that should take up all 4 days and 3 nights."

"Short time for Andalucia. You want it cheap on transport, which will take more time. Use the busses or trains ( ) to get around. Make sure you get to Granada, not for shopping, but for the Alhambra, the most stunning sight in Europe, which was on the list for the modern 7 wonders of the world. (that visit will take about 4 hours) and the Tapas in Granada are the best in Spain. Buy a beer or a glass of wine and you get a little plate of Tapas for free. Granada has also the Albacin, the moorish district, so don´t miss that. Head to Cordoba for the Mezquita, the palace. But it is no must. Sevilla has lots to offer, too. You should go through the websites of each town, or buy a travel guide. Honestly, when you are three pax, look into renting a car at the airport (check the websites and make a booking) because for 4 days, you are flexible and the price is prop. the same, using public transport. Stay at hostales, if you are ok staying in a tripple room, you save a lot of money. is a great site for that, youth hostels are a cheap way to, which are on that site too. Hope it helps, but don´t plan too much, Andalucia is a great place, so much to do and see, so you might want to change plans."

"You can´t possibly do three cities in three days. Do Sevilla alone. Go to the Cathedral and Giralda, tour the Alcázar, then take a hore buggy to the park (or walk, the buggy costs about 60 Euros, but it´s really nice). Day two, walk down Calle Sierpes from the Plaza Nueva, to La Campana for coffee and sweets, shopping on the way. Back up to the center of town, tapas or lunch in Barrio Santa Cruz, and more shopping. Take in a flamenco show, if you´re into it, but do your research and find something other than the three big ones. There´s supposed to be a really nice one in Triana, but I never figured it out, and La Carbonería in Barrio Santa Cruz (difficult to find, but a nice little place, from what I remember), is suppoed to have a really natural ´show´...less on the costumes (none?) and more on the just dancing. There´s also an Arab Bath in Barrio Santa Cruz, supposed to be a nice, different way to relax. I think you´ll probably run over on those activities, and that´ll fill your three days. (cause you´ll probably spend more time than you think getting to and from the lodging. For lodging (and ideas) check out sevilla5.com Best website I´ve found of anything. Anywhere."

I need to have like a craft or hands on activity that would teach you something about the region of Andalucia (spain) It has to be something easy and non-timeconsuming. A website would help out a lot or even a book that has easy access at the library. Thanks in advance!!

"How about flower arranging, that way you could learn all about the different flowers and plants from different areas of Spain, or painting, you could then paint the flowers or local scenery.Local garden centres sell plain terracotta plant pots you could paint them with different scenes of Spanish festivals. Go out walking and pick plants from the hedges then try and discover what they are. Basket weaving is also an old Spanish tradition, so is dancing. Cookery, there are tons of sites on the web for this, you could try 1 recipe every week. Plan a trip out, but before you go look on the web for the particular town you plan to visit and read up about it. Look on Google Earth and when you have found your home town spread your wings and look further.Photography is another option. Lastly but by no means leastly how about joining a local Spanish class, then you could join in local Spanish ladies clubs, there is usually 1 in every town and village Alternatively just browse the web for information on culture and you may be inspired by something Good luck"

"They have a great big festival in Sevilla around April sometime. I think its called dia Sevillana. The Andalusian region in my opinion is the best area of Spain."
PointHo :
"Something easy yet fun would be a project about the various architectural styles in Andalucia influenced by the Moors who lived there for 700 years. Search for La Mezquita in Cordoba or La Alhambra in Granada. Also, you could do something that has to do with the beautiful gardens, also from the Moors. Search for El Generalife in Granada."

"Andalucia is a southern region of Spain and that most influenced by the Moors who invaded this part of Europe from North Africa. There are many examples of their architecture,the best example of which is the Alhambra in Granada built between 1338 and 1390. have a look at a web site (Google Alhambra) and you might consider drawing a view of this. Alternatively look at the local food and recipes and practice making a dish or two"

Describes an old hidden away olive farm where you can stay and take riding holidays in the mountains. There are plenty of pictures of the horses and riders and their "baby" looking over the fence.
