Local resident and walks leader Jeremy Rabjohns takes his readers to the very heart of Andalucia: the Alpujarra - the wild and beautiful part of southern Spain that has achieved prominence in Chris Stewart's Driving over Lemons. The region is perfectly positioned for an entire holiday or simply for a short break from busy tourist areas. To the north there is the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, sprinkled with snow for much of the year, and the Moorish city of Granada with its magnificent Alhambra. Just an hour or so to the south are the popular resorts of the Costa del Sol and the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean. There are 27 walks in this book. Three explore the city of Granada: while the others - from 5km to 25km - are based on typical Alpujarran villages, each with an interesting history and unique character. In addition to the walks, there is information on travel, accommodation and cultural background - invaluable resources for aU visitors. An internet update service, free to all readers, ensures ongoing accuracy of information.
Jeremy has lived in the Alpujarra since 1995 and is a freelance guide and holiday organiser working throughout the area. The pastel and pen-work illustrations are by Jeremy's wife, Jeni, a trained and qualified painter and printmaker who works in the Alpujarra and draws inspiration from the area.

Southern Andalucía offers the hiker an extraordinary diversity of landscape on a strip of land about 350km in length and a maximum of 80km wide. Between the ancient port of Cadíz and the Costa de la Luz lined with shifting sand dunes and pine forests in the west, and the volcanic cliffs of Cabo de Gata in the east, you will find the 3000ers covered in snow almost all year round and a sub-tropical coastline. Luxuriant mediterranean forests are just as likely to be found here as are scorched semi-deserts and arid steppes.You can walk along bridle paths and old paths linking the villages, follow in the footsteps of charcoal burners, snow gatherers, miners, smugglers and bandoleros past white mountain villages and isolated cortijos. Fairytale forests, hidden valleys and gorges, airy crests, karst mountain ridges and remote lakes in limestone bowls promise some varied days. And then there are the coasts with their picturesque cliffs, fishing villages and idyllic natural beaches. Only a stone's throw away from the densely populated and over-developed sunny Spanish coastal resorts, you will discover fascinating and unspoiled landscapes.From straightforward cliff or beach walks and easy hikes between villages to demanding high mountain ascents, Bernd Plikat has selected 50 walks from various perspectives in the most beautiful areas of south Andalucía for this Rother walking guide. All the walks are introduced by a short fact-file of information, a detailed walk description, a hight profile and a small walking map indicating the line of the route. Colour photos give you a foretaste of this varied landscape and will hopefully inspire you go and explore for yourself
The GR7 avoids tarmac roads wherever possible, instead taking ancient trade routes, bridlepaths and even goat tracks. While most sections do not stray far from civilization, there are challenging days of up to 35km in length, so to make shorter days a tent is essential in some more remote sections. Nevertheless, camping can be avoided by the use of public transport, and there are only a few sections of steep ascent, so this route is suitable for walkers of reasonable fitness and navigational ability.• The first guide to cover the whole of the GR7 in Andalucía. • Detailed route description for around 60 days of walking, with options for creating shorter sections and days. • Information on all the villages en route including accommodation so that you can plan your own route.
