Faro is the capital city of the Algarve and it is also a landing point in Portugal and a city full of history, great shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres, galleries and great beaches. The central area is really quite compact and you can walk everywhere. 'Cidade Velha' is the oldest part of Faro and it is situated on the eastern side of the city. You should visit the Faro Cathedral which may not look very grand from the outside, but inside there are intricate gilded carvings, decorated tiles (azulejos) and works of art which are well worth seeing.
Placements in the Algarve - beautiful part of Portugal.
If you don't mind a bit of a climb, walk up the steps of the tower and get a magical view of Faro. It's a great opportunity to see the typical Portuguese pyramid shaped roofs of the Episcopal Palace which is still the official residence of the Bishop of Faro.
