Alentejo (Bradt Travel Guides) PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alentejo (Bradt Travel Guides) free pdf Bradt's Alentejo is the first full guide to the raw, beguiling heartland of southern Portugal. Dividing the Alentejo into three distinct sections, with detailed maps and itineraries suitable for all seasons, this guide offers by far the fullest and most complete coverage of the Alentejo region available. Aimed primarily at independent travellers and holidaymakers of all ages and on all budgets, it caters for nature lovers and hikers, history and archaeology enthusiasts, and anyone interested in discovering one of the least explored regions of western Europe. Regional food and wine specialities are also covered, along with details of the Alentejo's extraordinary range of accommodation, which is intricately bound with the region's history, from historic castles, palaces and monasteries converted into hotels and pousadas, to farm stays on cork-growing estates and budget pensoes and albergarias (inns).

About Alex Robinson

Alex Robinson has been visiting, writing about and photographing Portugal for more than twenty years. His work has been published in magazines including the Sunday Times, Wanderlust, Budget Travel and Viagem e Turismo - Brazil's premier travel publication. He is the only British journalist to win Brazil's prestigious Editora Abril journalism award, is the joint recipient of a U.S National Magazine Award, a Croatian Golden Pen and a Friends of the Earth International photography award. Long delighted that he could visit the Alentejo and share its beaches, castles and fine dining restaurants only with the warm and welcoming locals, Alex decided in 2014 that he was being selfish. He wrote this book as penance. And he hopes to meet you over a glass of Adega de Borba in one of Europe's finest and most forgotten corners sometime soon.
