The present study focuses on the construction of the Andalusian Baroque imaginary in Murray, Baedeker, and Joanne travel guides published between 1882 and 1909 in England, Germany, and France. In order to do so, the approaches that relevant historians and Hispanists such as Carl Justi, Richard Ford, or Paul M. Lefort put forward in these guides will be analyzed, in addition to presenting the proposed itineraries to visit Andalusia. The star rating of the Baedeker guides will serve as an introduction to know the most admired, the most represented or dignified cities and what position the Baroque style had compared with other artistic works. Then, the image that was developing regarding Andalusian architecture, painting, and sculpture, and the prominence of Murillo, Velázquez, Montañés, and Cano will be exposed.
