Hi there,
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

Jess

For the South of Spain, you have to visit Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba, for sure. The rest is up to your imagination. It would be really helpful if you can rent a car here (don't know if you have the budget), as connections with busses to the smaller places can differ in frequency.

You could consider places like Ronda, Arcos de la Frontera, Cadiz, and maybe some time in the Alpujarras (the southside of the Sierra Nevada.) 3-4 weeks for the south seems a little bit overdone, so I would also consider other places in the inland of Spain, like Madrid of course, but also Cuenca, Salamaca, Toledo (doable as a daytrip from Madrid, just as Segovia and Avila). but maybe also the less traveled towns of Caceres, Merida and Truijllo.

If you want to take a crossing to Morocco, than consider a flight to Rabat, Marrakesh or Casablanca, rather than going to Tangiers.

don't forget about barcelona. it would be a crime to spend 1 month in spain and not go and see barcelona;)

and San Sebastian, Cabo de Gato, Santiago etc... and while in Spain, it's also a shame not to cross the border to Portugal.

But you are right about Barcelona. Somehow i had the idea, that Madrid would be the way Jess would get to Spain, and stuck with the more inland options. (maybe because I prefer that myself).

hi soz im gonna recomend two places in spain miles from each other, i have been many times to all areas, the best places in my opinion are

1. Barcelona, one of the best citys in the world, loads of amazing arcitecture and great vibe etc.

2. Tarifa is the furthest south tip of spain which is watersports capitol of europe. One of the most stunning beachs in europe and loads of charector in the old part of town and also there is a ferry which goes to Morroco from the prot there, here you can also go whale watching in the straight of gibrolter. Been there twice now and love it.
