From architecture and art to ‘quintas’ and gastronomy, this book aims to shine the spotlight on the “other” Algarve and its lesser known attractions that provide a glimpse into a more authentic Algarvian experience.

“You won’t find typical travel destinations or maps in this book, and the choice of topics might seem eclectic. But, in my opinion, they all offer different stories of Algarvian creativity and innovation, sparking our imagination with intriguing insights to places few people know about,” says Annelies.

Despite being a Dutch national, the author says the Algarve is her true home.

“In many ways, a lot has changed since I moved here. More resorts, more tourists, motorways and shopping centres. On the other hand, there is still the same Algarvian spirit, found away from the must-visit attractions – hidden gems to experience and creative people to meet that make this place so special.”
