The best sights in Faro
The capital of the Algarve, Faro is partly built on white rocks. The city has a rich history and is full of buildings and other remnants that date back to the Roman era. For example, the 2,000-year-old city walls in the old part Vula Adento. Also don't miss a visit to the cathedral Sé de Faro. This church was destroyed and later restored, featuring a mishmash of architectural styles. The charming restaurants serve up sardines from the grill, roasted chicken with piri piri and of course the Portuguese sweet pastry pastéis de nata. Go for a swim in the water of the Atlantic Ocean, for example at Praia de Faro beach. Planning a road trip through the Algarve? Then Faro is the perfect starting point.
