He is no typical guide - he avoids the sights in favour of a remote Romanesque church, a cobweb-ridden chapel, the local and the domestic - but, with his deep fount of memory and erudite knowledge, each encounter evoking the span of Portugals history, he is anyones idea of a delightful travelling companion.
