Patterns of Monchique #2

Continuing my earlier post with the idea for a Patterns of Monchique book, to give the book a bit more purpose and also bring in the people of Monchique bit: The book consists of a number of trails through the town of Monchique based on themes e.g. Each walk is about an hour long, exploring corners off the beaten tourist track. e.g.

  • House fronts and nice details
  • Local products
  • Tiled houses
  • Craft shops and Cafes
Each trail would have 1 or 2 stopping points to explore or stop.

Nice to have: Interviews with local crafts men/women/ shop owners etc in sections between trails as things to discover. Also a great opportunity to improve my Portuguese!
