Is this the same Algarve', you may ask, 'as the Algarve of high-rise hotels, fine beaches and a coastline so famous that there is no need to look further?' Such is the beauty of the coastline, that few visitors look for more - but Brian and Eileen Anderson (the authors of this guide) did. They say, "we found a countryside full of interest and beauty, quietly awaiting discovery. From flowers and fountains, hilltops and history, to windmills and water-mills, we can set your feet wandering to find them all". There are car tours, too, to get you out and about, searching out little-known points of interest - like the huge rose compass (rosa dos ventos) on the barren promontory of Sagres, where Prince Henry the Navigator founded his school of navigation, or the Moorish castle and old Roman bridge at Paderne. A guidebook that will add a new dimension to your Algarve holiday. "Very good disciptions of walking tours in Algarve. We did walks nr 1, 2, 3 and 10 in the summer of 2003, and had some breathtaking moments while walking along Algarve's beautiful coastline. The discriptions and directions in the book were excact and easy to follow. Although the walking times in the book didn't quite fit our level of training, it was no big issue as we enjoyed every moment of the walks. We have used the Landscapes series for walking directions in other parts of Europe as well, and we have not yet been disappointed.' (Reviewer)
