About Faro

Faro, in the Algarve district of Portugal is a nice blend of history and modernity. The Faro old town offers a good sight seeing opportunity. This part of the city is still contained within the Roman walls that were built in the 9th century. Faro has a rich history and has grown into a popular holiday resort for many tourists from all over Europe. Being a university town makes Faro come alive with the vibrant activity of the university students. Faro also offers beautiful, sandy beaches, which all worth a visit. Don’t forget to check out the cafés and restaurants for the local dishes and cakes. The temperate climate in the Algarve makes Faro a popular all year round destination for holidaymakers and sports enthusiasts. Apart from the beaches around the city, central Faro contains many enticing tourist attractions. The Old City The Old City area features an oval of cobblestone alleyways and very eye-catching Moorish-style buildings, painted in bright colours and often featuring their own set of ornate balconies. A number of art galleries and friendly cafes reside in this part of Faro. Beaches The region`s beautiful sandy beaches have long been a leading summer attraction and tourists always flock here during the summer period. Lying on the south-westerly side of the town and on the Ilha de Faro, the Praia de Faro is the main beach and one of the best that the eastern Algarve has to offer, with fine sand facing both the seafront and a more sheltered lagoon area. Harbour The harbourfront is where much of the action takes place in Faro and is the perfect part of the city to come and soak up the atmosphere, while enjoying a drink at one of the waterfront cafes. Pathways next to the harbour offer a scenic place to promenade of a sunny evening, when crowds often gather here to meet up and socialise. Ria Formosa Boat trips to the Ria Formosa nature reserve are always popular with visitors, with the cruise lasting approximately two and a half hours in total. Regular boats depart from the jetty within the Old City and stop off at an island along the way. Igreja do Carmo Church / Capela dos Ossos The Igreja do Carmo Church is home to one of the most unusual tourist attractions in Faro, being where you will discover the slightly macabre Chapel of Bones, which is known to the locals as the `Capela dos Ossos`. This unusual building is surrounded by gardens and is decorated by actual human bones and skeletal remains of former monks, collected from the adjoining cemetery. Viva Science Centre The Centro Cienca Viva is the perfect indoor family attraction when the weather is wet and is situated within the city`s former electricity station. Children will always enjoy the hands-on activities and interactive fun at the Viva Science Centre, whilst learning about a number of interesting scientific principals.
