There are numerous other sources of information about Walking in Spain. Blue text indicates a clickable link.

In our own area – the Costa Blanca – there are 2 old guide books published by Cicerone and written by a member of our own group.  These are Costa Blanca Mountain Walks – Vol 1: West and Vol 2: East.  These were first published in 1995 and have recently been revised into a single volume – Walking on the Costa Blanca, now edited by Terry Fletcher.

Several other tomes have been published with walk suggestions.  Costa Blanca Walks by Charles Davis and published by Santana Books was published in 2006 and contains details of 33 walks.  Santana Books have now ceased trading.

Rother Walking Guides publish a guide to the Costa Blanca and the most recent edition was published in 2014.  It has details of 50 walks.

A Sunflower book on Costa Blanca was last updated in 2009.

All of these are now somewhat outdated.
