Andalucia: Costa del Sol – Seville – Cordoba – Granada area at 1:200,000 on a large indexed map from Marco Polo Travel Publishing with six street plans and special features to aid route planning and navigation. The map does not cover the whole of the Andalucía administrative region of Spain but only its central area as shown on our area coverage image. South-east of Granada, most of the Sierra Nevada is included as far as its highest peak, Mulhacén.
A fold-out extension of the map cover gives at-a-glance overview of the whole area covered by the map with the adjoining regions, making it much easier to find various localities on the main map and/or plan a route. A set of seven peel-on/peel-off stickers, removable without damaging the map, is provided to make routes or locations more prominent when navigating.
The map, with cartography from the renowned German publishers MairDumont, boldly stresses main roads and motorways in strong colours and selected towns in large letters, but also shows minor roads and villages in considerable detail. Road information includes toll roads, traffic restrictions and seasonal closures, gradient marking for steep roads, scenic roads and special tourist routes, etc. Motorway services clearly indicate types of facilities available there. Railway network is shown with stations and includes tourist lines. Picturesque towns or villages and sites worth visiting, including areas with interesting landscape, are given star rating, and other tourist information includes campsites and youth hostels, landmarks, recreational facilities etc. National parks and other protected areas are highlighted. Topography is shown by relief shading with spot heights and colouring for wooded areas. The map shows plenty of names of geographical features: sierras, valleys, etc. Latitude and longitude grid is drawn at intervals of 10′. Multilingual map legend and all information include English.
The index is in a separate booklet attached to the map cover and lists all locations with their postcodes. The booklet also contains street plans of central Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Jerez de la Frontera, Málaga and Seville, plus a distance/travelling times table, emergency numbers and main traffic regulations.
