Is a good place for a relaxing sunny afternoon if you want to sit at a table outdoor enjoying a soft drink
Beautifully kept, historic and easy access. The church and museum are fantastic and the archway is magnificent.
Dating from the moorish occupation, the old town in bounded by old city walls and paved in ancient cobble stones. While renovation work is ongoing and there is always some older dilapidated building being worked on, there are also many restaurants and bars Where you can escape the heat.

The most beautiful place in Faro. Big contrast with the rest of the city which is in big decay. I hope that one day the rest of Faro will be more appealing to see as well.
A Vintage version of Faro - nicely preserved with it's cobbled streets and neat white-washed buildings reminiscing of the Colonial hey-days of the Portuguese Empire. Warrants a visit if visiting the nearby Ria Formosa National Park.
Beautiful and well worth a visit. Full of culture and history.
Nice to walk around, not much to see or activities and was easy to cover in an hour of walking slowly and not stopping. Some nice restaurants but again nothing too special A few shops but nothing special and just general shops that are found everywhere. I recommend going to somewhere like Lagos or Alvor instead, which has more options for tourists, and better atmosphere to see things or just relax. In this summer time Faro does put on big screens in the centre for events, in our case the football World Cup game which brings a bit more entertainment and energy to the place.
Very lovely and interesting old city with a Roman history dating back to @ 2nd century BC. The town has seen much conflict with troubles from the Roman era through the Moorish occupation and the later Spanish conflicts. Lots of history and many different architectural influences from over 2000 years of change. Well worth a visit 😀
Nice and quiet place: came here with friends for an afternoon and we enjoyed walking around the streets. Unfortunately we had some troubles finding some place to set and relax, but the antiques shops and the nice tiled walls were worth the visit.
Many people only know this city for it's airport, well try the old city it might pleasantly surprised you
