The Algarve is one of southern Europe's most popular destinations. Blessed with fine weather, sweeping beaches and a dramatically picturesque interior, the region attracts many different visitors, from second-homers to golf fanatics to windsurfers. The "Rough Guide" map is designed to help get the most from a trip to the area, whatever your interests - there are footpaths and contour lines for those on foot and details of petrol stations and road surfaces for those travelling by the road. As with all the maps in the "Rough Guides" series, this map is made of rip-proof, waterproof Polyart paper, durable enough to survive trips spent in the car seat-back, rucksack and cafe table-top. Scale 1:100,000.
