Home / Portugal/ Algarve/ Faro

Faro is not only the capital of The Algarve but it is also a fascinating city and must be visited.

Most people arriving at Faro Airport head to their destination and may not include this charming city in their itineraries but unlike other regional capitals in Europe Faro has far more to offer and is a destination on its own.

It is distinctively Portuguese, has a typical historic centre with beautiful narrow pedestrianised streets with black and white mosaic design, charming small cafes and bars, many high-quality restaurants and of course number of shops to entertain the everyday visitors. The main square with beautiful Cidade Velha cathedral, picture-perfect bell tower, and the marina are one of the few things that are worth exploring whilst in the area.
