From the team at Monocle, this is a practical travel guide to Portugal, featuring unique insights and stunning images throughout.


Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful The Monocle Book of Italy and The Monocle Book of the Nordics, Monocle’s latest title turns its focus to Portugal in an exciting new series of country-specific books.


A handbook in feel and tone, this practical guide will transport you to the sun-dappled hills of Lisbon and the winding streets of Porto as well as lesser-known locales ranging from the Alentejo region, with its plentiful vineyards, to the dramatic landscapes of the Azores. Discover Monocle’s favorite places to stay, eat and shop—stop off at an elegant palácio, indulge in a family-run tasca and scour the streets for the creamiest pastéis de nata—and make exciting cross-country trips (whether by car, boat or horse). You’ll also be introduced to the country’s rich culture, including the history of Portugal’s vibrant visual identity and the folks at the heart of it all. There’s even a chapter dedicated to those thinking of relocating to Portugal, including case studies on those who’ve made the move, tips on the best neighborhoods to invest in, and recommendations for architects and interior designers. So join in, hit the tiles and explore this fascinating country in Portugal: The Monocle Handbook.
