Historical monuments and landmarks are all around - you just need to know where to look. "101 Historic Hideaways" is a guide to destinations that will transport you to bygone ages, offer insights into former empires and civilisations, reveal religious origins and cultural landmarks, and celebrate events that have helped shape the history of mankind. Throughout history, man has sought to build empires and gain dominance. By piecing together remains of those former empires you can plot a vivid timeline of the past. South America's Inca ruins may clash aesthetically with the Spanish and Portuguese colonial architecture around them, but together they paint the continent's story. This juxtaposition of old and even older is repeated in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America and Australia and is explored throughout the beautiful guide.
