From the Air: Algarve

Timeless Travels Magazine - - BOOK REVIEW - D. San­tos & N. Au­gusto

Fly­ing Book House Pub­lished: Septem­ber 2016 Price: £17.80 (Hard­cover)

This is a fan­tas­tic book which gives a won­der­fully dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive to other guide books to the Algarve. Writ­ten in both English and Por­tuguese, the aerial pho­to­graphs show the area’s beau­ti­ful land­scapes, with views of land and sea, towns and cities, the moun­tains and stun­ning beaches.

Ar­ranged ge­o­graph­i­cally from East to West, this book has pho­to­graphs and com­men­tary of each ma­jor town and city and so can il­lus­trate what other books can only talk about. It is a great way to see ahead of time where you would like to visit.

Por­tu­gal has a cul­ture full of his­tory and thanks to these fab­u­lous aerial pho­to­graphs, it is pos­si­ble to see things, such as how many cas­tles there are in the Algarve. Ev­ery­one knows about the golden sandy beaches lapped by a crys­tal clear sea, but this book shows there is more to the area than just a stun­ning coast­line. It also dis­plays well the in­te­rior re­gions of the area and the di­verse ter­rain that ex­ists.

Com­plete with an in­tro­duc­tion by Cliff Richard, this book is def­i­nitely worth a look whether you are go­ing to visit or are just an arm­chair trav­eller.
