Suggestions of what to see in Faro, the capital of Algarve region:

Pass through the old town's walls of Roman origin and get to know the history hidden in its stones. The Romans rebuilt the wall around the main city area, which corresponds now to the Old Town, where the forum, the temples, and the other public buildings were situated. Its old town has an interesting history to be told, stay tuned!

Admire the beauty of historic buildings such as the Faro Cathedral. It is one of Faro's most beautiful monuments, providing a splendid view of the city and the ria (drowned river valley).

Discover Faro Bishop's Palace, a whitewashed building decorated with hand-painted tiles housing a very nice exhibition of a scared house.

See the Convent of Our Lady of the Assumption. The Convent was situated in the Jewish quarter known as ‘Judiaria’ that had existed there until 1496. The Convent constitutes one of the most interesting examples of the early Renaissance period on the Algarve, with cloister and the exterior door of the church deserving special mention. Now, it houses an interesting collection of art and archaeological artifacts in the form of the Municipal Museum of Faro, including a thirty-foot section of the mosaic floor dating back to Roman times.  

Get to know the Arco da Vila, an archway formed through the town walls in the early 1800’s. Designed by an Italian architect, Francisco Xavier Fabris at the request of the Bishop of the Algarve, this archway forms one of the most interesting displays combining stone and brickwork.

And/or enjoy the free time for shopping and to walk along the magnificent Ria Formosa’s Lagoon.
