Is This the Right Book for Me?

Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to Rick's complete Spain guidebook?

Nope! Our Snapshot guides are simply excerpted chapters from our full-length guidebooks. Snapshot: Sevilla, Granada & Southern Spain covers the exact same topics as the southern Spain and Morocco chapters of the complete Rick Steves Spain guidebook — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything.

Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to Rick's Best of Spain guidebook?

That mainly depends on whether your plans include Tarifa or Tangier (Morocco), neither of which are included in Rick Steves Best of Spain. Our Best of Spain book does include fairly detailed chapters on Sevilla, Granada, and Andalucía's White Hill Towns, as well as condensed coverage of Córdoba, Nerja, and Gibraltar. But if you'd like more comprehensive coverage of the region, the Snapshot guide is worthwhile.
