history -muslim and jewish in andalucia?

We are considering a trip in May (between 8 and 12 days) to Andalucia hoping to explore in particular the Muslim and Jewish history in the region. Any suggestions? we are 3 fairly active travellers, one is native Spanish speaker. Locations, day trips, guides, any suggestions to uncover hidden history are welcome.

Gracias!

You need to definitely visit Toledo and Cordoba. Then perhaps go to Granada for the Alhambra and the history of the Reconquista. Spend as much time as possible at the Alhambra visiting the Carlos V museum as well.

read Tales of the Alhambra by Washington Irving (download online free?)
