Algarve
Car Tours and Walks
Brian Anderson and Eileen Anderson

4" x 8.25" • 136 pages • full-color
ISBN 9781856913980 • paperback • $17.99

The Algarve is a wonderful walking destination almost all year round, with magnificent coastal scenery and lesser-known uplands.

Few visitors explore beyond the beautiful Algarve coastline, but the Andersons did. They say, "We found a countryside full of interest and beauty. From flowers and fountains, hilltops and history, to windmills and watermills, we can set your feet wandering to find them all. But you can explore Algarve by car, too, searching out little-known points of interest—like the huge rose compass on the barren promontory of Sagres, where Prince Henry the Navigator founded his school of navigation. But don't think that we have ignored the beautiful and rugged coastline. Wherever it is still unspoilt and free from development, we have incorporated it into a walk."

This pocket-sized guide describes car tours, picnic places and walks throughout the Algarve. There is a fold-out touring map for motorists, which also highlights the various walking areas. For those without a car, there are timetables for local transport.

The major part of the book is devoted to the walks for all ages and abilities. They are all illustrated with 1:50,000 topographical walking maps (which also show the route of the Algarve Way - a long-distance trail running from the border with Spain to the west coast).

5 car tours, 40 long and short walks, 20 picnic suggestions. Plan of Faro. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.

The "Landscapes" series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed "the blue Bibles" by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.
