Editors Corner

It's time once again for the transformation of Andalucia when Easter is observed with such fervour and passion that visitors pour into the region from the rest of Spain and abroad to experience history coming to life in solemn processions. Now at, you'll find more information than ever about every aspect of Semana Santa in Andalucia.

This month we also meet up with Málaga born contemporary artist Diego Santos, well known at home and abroad. Santos is dedicated not only to a wide variety of art forms, but also to retro-style interior design - and saving a dying species of local architecture: the bulky leftovers of a 1950's era that put the Costa del Sol on the map.

If you are a fan of the equestrian arts, visit our new, improved section devoted to horses in southern Spain. We have everything from the history of the world famous breed that originates here to information about where to see the best displays of Andalusian horsemanship.

Finally, last month we enjoyed a humorous look at life behind the wheel in Spain. This month we bring you an updated guide to driving in this country.

See you at the processions!
