I am thinking of visiting Spain, I am interested in the South of Spain, and maybe if I have time and money to cross over North Africa and seeing a bit of Morocco.
For 3 to 4 weeks trip, what places would you recommend me to visit?
I like the "adventure" so I don't like to plan too much in advance, but it is always good to have some ideas.
Thanks in advance
Definitely incorporate Andalucia - I went to Granada, for the Alhambra and Albaicin, and Seville, with the cathedral and barrio santa cruz last year and they were both great places to visit, fab architecture and history, warm people and lovely food - also stayed at Almeria which was nice for 1 night and has boats to morocco.
yep, definately visit Andalucia, you will love it, lots to do, and it will be good fun!! There are 8 provinces in Andalucia: GRanada, Sevilla, Cordoba for the culture. Cadiz and Malaga area for crowded beach fun, Huelva and Almeria for less spoilt beaches, and Jaen... well, for the olives!!
You can take the boats from both Almeria and Malaga ports into Melilla, and also to Ceuta from ALgeciras. Those two are spanish cities in the north coast of morocco, and once you are there (dont bother in stopping over if you dont really need to, there is nothing to see) you can cross the border into morocco and head down to Marrakech and Casablanca for example, which are well worth the visit. Be aware that transport and communications in morocco are , well, below standards! and it is a big shock when you cross the straight of Gibraltar in few hours you are in a completely different world!
Hope you enjoy!!

Yes, definitely Granada is a must, on your way to morocco I would also recommend you a small wonderful and amazing town called Ronda, and Grazalema (surprinsingly the weatest town in Spain, although it has really nice weather by the time you are planning to go).
