bit further south,but when you've done the Alhambra in Granada,go over to Ronda,beautiful place,take a carriage ride round the town,park anywhere there's a view,then down to Gibraltar,if you've never been it's a really interesting place, have a look round the graveyard,a lot of sailors ended up there after Trafalgar. after that you could maybe meet up with Ken and have a weather-orientated total smugfest !

Alicante to Tharagotha then Granada, then Ronda then Gibel Tariq then up to Almeria, wow that's a bit of a circuit. The one thing to remember is that this time of year, or at least shortly inland Spain can get very parkey and bleak....... elevation has everything to do with it.

I agree with the suggestions of Mr Brown & Byronic but would also add Cordoba, Almeria & Sevilla (beautiful place). From around November onwards it will be cold, icy & possibly snowy on high inland roads over the major Sierras but having crossed central Spain several times in mid-winter we've yet to see a road closed. I'm not sure what the Spanish Regs are on use of winter tyres, we've never fitted them.

If you're going to Zaragossa there is a nice walk along the river and the Expo site from 2008 is worth a look. The Basilca in Zaragossa is beautiful and well worth a look.

Hi Jenny,
No doubt you've heard the story of fake police, tyre pointing etc. along the M/Way from south of Barcelona towards Valencia. We've never seen anything similar around there but we take the coast non-M/Way road & usually also out of tourist season. Happy travels !.
