  Andalucia (Pallas Guide Series)
In this masterly book, now in a third, revised edition, Michael Jacobs looks with fresh eyes at all the traditional delights of Andalucia while doing full justice to the lesser-known aspects of the region. He explores Andalucia's local cuisine, varied natural scenery, the composers and writers who fueled the romantic myths of the region, and the legacy of Lorca and the Spanish Civil War. Included in the book are the region's Moorish past, prehistoric and classical heritage, and Renaissance and Baroque monuments. Nearly a hundred Andalucian villages and towns are described in the gazetteer, some of which - Seville, Granada, Cordoba and Cadiz - are as lovely and as haunting as any in the world.

Andalusia - Art and Architecture
I bought this book for the drawings of maps and building plans. The photos in this book are good for a budget armchair tour. These two aspects together satisfied my curiosity about the architecture better than most individual history or travel books. Of course many other arts are represented along with short narrative articles on people and places (commentary of Erik G. Olson).

Photo Books

An illustrated guide to this part of Spain.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful regions in the world, Andalusia is a landscape filled with color and majesty. Evergreen's book captures the magnificence of southern Spain with its gorgeous photography and charming prose. If you love travel, Spain, or exotic places, this book is for you. Chapters cover major cities (Seville, Malaga, Granada, and more) and major regions, as well as popular customs and old traditions. This book is a great introduction to Andalusia; it is by no means an in-depth historical account or a travel guide. Primarily a picture book, this volume is easy to read and meant to be enjoyed at leisure. If anything, this book is too slim and leaves you wanting more (customers's review).

Houses and Palaces of Andalusia
With riches from New World conquests pouring into Seville in the 16th to 18th centuries, the Spanish nobility of Andalucia built exquisite houses and palaces. This book chronicles the finest of these treasures, traces the development of a distinctive regional style of architecture and decoration- the beautiful tiles, dramatic staircases and doorways, columns, and arches, and the cool exterior patios that are so integral to Spanish building. Many of these homes are miraculously preserved with their authentic interiors intact, and a fascinating text tells the stories of the families that built and lived in them.
