Portugal: The Monocle Handbook

Tyler Brûlé, Joe Pickard, Andrew Tuck


Following in the footsteps of the hugely successful Monocle Book of Italy and The Monocle Book of the Nordics, our 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 from the Alentejo region, with its plentiful vineyards, to the dramatic landscapes of the Azores. Plus, discover our favorite places to stay, eat and shop—stop off at an elegant palácio, indulge in a family-run tascas and scour the streets for the creamiest pastéis de nata—and the cross-country trips we’d make (whether by car, boat, or horse). We’ll also introduce you to the country’s rich culture, including the history of Portugal’s vibrant visual identity and the folks at the heart of it all. So join us as we hit the tiles and explore this fascinating country in The Portugal Handbook.
