Maps

For one of the best overviews of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), pick up a copy of Michelin map no. 990 (folded version) or no. 460 (spiral-bound version). For more detailed looks at Spain, including many minor roads, Michelin has a series of six maps (nos. 441-446) of specific regions, such as Andalusia.

For extensive touring, purchase Mapas de Carreteras -- España y Portugal, available at most bookstores in Spain. This cartographic compendium provides an overview of Spain and includes road and street maps of some major cities.

The American Automobile Association (www.aaa.com) publishes a regional map of Andalusia that's available free to members at most AAA offices in the United States. Incidentally, the AAA is associated with the Real Automóvil Club de España (RACE; tel. 90-240-45-45; www.race.es). This organization can supply helpful information about road conditions in Spain, including tourist and travel advice. It will also provide limited emergency road service.
