Sevilla

When asked to describe Spain, Sevilla immediately comes to mind. Good weather throughout the year, flamenco, religious festivities, bullfighting, charm & a certain chispa are all proud trademarks of the city. But there’s so much more: a seafaring past that brought trade from the Americas & merchants from around the globe, a producer of ceramic goods that influenced world design for centuries & two stunning Expos that gave the city a new life. The Regionalist Architecture guide reveals Sevilla in fascinating detail:

Lisbon

Lisbon, Lisboa, Endless Mile, guides, PDF, Portugal

One of the most visually stunning of all European capitals, sunlight reflects off the Tejo River onto pastel buildings stacked high among several hills. Amazing views are everywhere… if you can survive the hike up! Lisbon has a marvelous public transportation system but is also an ideal city for walkers since distances are quite manageable. Unafraid to mix a bit of the modern along with its stunning Baroque past, the city remains pleasantly lived in, homey & welcoming —at least outside the now overrun Baixa. The following guides reveal the city in fascinating detail: Azulejos, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos & Catholic Heritage.




Mosteiro de Alcobaça

Portugal, Alcobaça, mosteiro, Endless Mile, Robert Wright, PDF, guide

At the junction of two rivers on a former frontier, Cistercian monks used know-how, determination & prayer to create the most influential monastery in all of Portugal. But after war with Napoleon & a later rejection of all monastic orders, the national government dissolved the monastery & sent monks packing. Fortunately restoration projects have preserved their legacy for us to admire today. The following guide reveals the Mosteiro de Alcobaça in fascinating detail:




Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Endless Mile, guides, PDF, Argentina

With an urban area of almost 13 million people —32% of the nation’s population— Buenos Aires is an urban explorer’s paradise. Its grid street plan is easy to navigate, remarkably flat terrain makes getting around easy & the city’s immense size urges walkers to continue on & on. Buenos Aires experienced a long, overdue rebirth after the 2001 financial crisis & its charm continues to bring tourists back… even if economic troubles continue. Possessing a rich & complex history, Buenos Aires has much of interest often hidden in plain sight. The following guides reveal the city in fascinating detail: Recoleta Cemetery, Plaza de Mayo, a discounted bundle of both Recoleta Cemetery & Plaza de Mayo guides together, Art Nouveau, Once/Calle Paso & Domes (direct download, free as a sample of our style).




It’s easy to see what makes Endless Mile unique: these are guidebooks written by a guide. Robert takes advantage of local research facilities to demystify urban legends & recover long-lost connections between people & events. Although attention to detail & original research sets Endless Mile apart, so does Robert’s unique style of presentation. Explore more!
