Bradt Guide, Engelsk text, Edtion 2019
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 pensões and albergarias (inns).
