Sevilla or Malaga or Marabella

Hello,

we are coming to Spain in mid JUly, arriving in Barcelona and departing from Madrid.

We plan to rent a car from Barcelona and go around Spain to Madrid.

Please if you could help us decide which cities we have to see. we are not into Musuems a lot, the only musuem, I would like to see Picasso Musuem.

so far i was thinking, Barcelona to Granada, Sevilla, Madrid

is there a city in between Barcelona and Granada where we Should stop overnight?

Should I Skip Sevilla and go To Malaga or Marabella

Thanks for your help

Between Barcelona and Granada you could look at Valencia or Elche.

Seville/Malaga/Marbella is not easy as they are so different. Seville is a fascinating city - probably the most beautiful and traditional of those on your list. Marbella is a modern, high-class resort with marina and beaches.

Malaga is somewhere in between the two - nowhere near as interesting as Seville, and the 'resort' not as good as Marbella, but it does have both features and is worthy of a visit.

Start with whether you want to sit on a beach or visit a city at the end of your holiday, and that should make the decision for you.

I assume that you have factored in intense heat and difficulty driving in city centres, as these are likely to be major factors in your journey.

If you make it to Seville and you should, try and go to Ronda and see some of The Peublos Blancos in the Ronda area. Grazalema is a must see, so beautiful up there in those hills. Cadiz is also a very beautiful city with great beaches, good luck and have fun. Hubie

Taylorstrip:

There are many places to visit in Andalucia: Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada, Malaga, Jerez, Cadiz, and several other smaller cities, incluidng the many white towns (~ in that order if this is your first time to Espana); Marbella would be one of the last places to visit in my list (and only for the beaches) but this is only my opinion; one more thing, in May the south of Andalucia will be HOT, ( 90 to 100 F).

Do not miss Ronda, or you will miss a magnificent part of Andalucia.
