Faro

Visit Faro

Introduction

Most visitors to Faro are only passing through on their way to resorts on the rest of the Algarve. Capital of the region and home to the only international airport, Faro merits consideration as a town in its own right and not just the gateway to a larger region. This is one of the most historic and charming spots on the southern coast.

Cidade Velha, the oldest part of the city, rubs up against the picturesque Marina providing the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by. With marvellously preserved medieval architecture, this area is rivalled only by the stunning interior of Faro's cathedral, where a climb to the top rewards with breathtaking views out over Faro and the Algarve.

On the doorstep of this city is Portugal's most southerly nature reserve, Ria Formosa. The best way to explore this region of dunes and picturesque seawater lagoons is to take a detour via boat before heading onto the coves and beaches that litter the rest of the coast.
