The Algarve region
Please ask your Holiday Home Owner for further details.
The city of Faro is the capital of the Algarve and main doorway for tourism, however, Faro is also a beautiful and historic town of its own accord.
Faro was constructed in the Moorish era, but during the earthquake of 1755 most of the old buildings were destroyed. Within the old city 'Cidade Velha' you can visit theGothic church of Sé, in amongst cobbled streets and white washed buildings set within sturdy town walls. The main appeal is the clock tower which you can climb up for superb views over the surrounding coastland. Another church worth visiting is the Largo do Carmo, which has a chapel built from human bones and skulls … not recommended for the faint hearted!
Faros' commercial part of the city is pedestrianized and is a haven for shoppers. While the nearby 'Forum Algarve' shopping centre is a great last minute drop-in for gift purchasing before catching your plane.
Culturally Faro, Loulé and further west offer a wide selection of festivals, concerts and events during the summer months.
