    • Flamenco shops & Parking

      Sevilla Oct 1, 2016 at 1:27 AM

      Where is the nearest place on non-metered parking near the cathedral please - we parked a 20 minute walk on the outskirts of town by the metro down from the Alcatraz and saw one large church but not the cathedral and missed out on a lot of the barrie gothic

      When we were walking down from the large church keeping straight we went into a large shop selling shawls and beautiful fans - they gave me a dark green carrier bag - my friend is into salsa/tango dancing and I would like to get some reasonably priced fans - any suggestions please

      Really looking forward to going back to this lovely city - planning to go Mid Nov Many thanks

Ideally the location we stay in will be a smaller city/town with easy access to beaches/shops/restaurants.....preferably that allows us to experience the spanish culture with modern conveniences....

We are looking to rent a studio/appartment/ small house ( one bedroom, living room, kitchen) for approximatively 2 or 3 months (from December till March),what kind of a price would I be looking at? I would be curious to know if anybody could recommend sites or resources to view (cheap) rental listings and if possible to get in touch directly with owners.

    • day out in Alpujarras on the bus

      by MelPotter Online Now Jul 7, 2008 at 2:19 PM

      Any ideas for where to go on the bus as a day trip from Granada? I'm going the first week in September, so it'll be very hot, but would like to do a shortish circular walk in this region, although have to rely on public transport.

      Any ideas or tips gratefully received!

      Hi everyone!

      I will be travelling to spain in May and I definiltey want to stop in the Alpujarras. Do you all think that a day trip will be enough? Also, are there any buses that can take us there from Granada. What do you all think would be the best way to get there?

      Thank you all for your help. I'm trying to finalize my trip to Europe and I need this information before I book my hotel in Granada. Thanks again for your time!

      Happy Travels

    • driving alone in Spain

      by LightPanther Online Now May 31, 2004 at 4:09 PM

      Hi there I (male) was thinking about hiring a small camper or motorhome and spending a fortnight or so looking at different regions in Spain. But I have some concerns:- It sounds like a great idea, but on the other hand, I have never been to Spain before, don't speak Spanish ("solo un poco!"), never dirven a left had vehicle before etc. Do you think this is a wise idea, or am I biting off more than I can chew? Would I be allowed to park such a vehicle in small villages or rural locations just at the side of the road? (wouldn't particularly want to tour campsites) Most important, would it e safe to do that? And would the police be ok with it? I would also be grateful if anyone knows any surprise trip-ups (such as petrol pumps that only accept credit cards, that kind of thing). I should say that my reason for travelling is to sound out regions with a view to a possible place to live. The alternative is to go on an organised coach tour, which obviously eliminates some of the above concerns, but on the other hand tends to concentrate on Big Cities, Museums etc. What do you recommend? What do you think? Is a foreigner likely to be safe enough driving around Spain like this? (mainly small town / rural, but not exclusively). Please do reply and in advance many thanks (muchas gracias) :) Mark
