This thematic travel guide contains ten itineraries for exploring Islamic Portugal, each taking a different geographical area and lasting 1-2 days. It is an 'exhibition' not of artefacts, but of landscapes, sites and monuments across central and southern Portugal which explores the art and history of more than five centuries of Muslim presence. It is filled throughout with colour photographs and includes three introductory essays on 'Islamic art in the Mediterranean', 'Gharb al-Andalus: a brief history' and 'The far west of Iberia'.
