Info about Faro

Area:
202 km2
Elevation:
10 m
Overview

Faro is a charming, walled city located in the south of Portugal. Apart from being the capital of the Faro district, it is also the capital of the picturesque tourist region of Algarve. Faro is considered to be the gateway into Portugal because of the Faro International Airport, which is located about 7 km west of the main city. There are also sufficient bus services and train routes to other cities.
Due to its location in the south, Faro mostly experiences a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and sunny with temperatures reaching approximately 35°C, more than enough for a summer tan or a taste of the Portuguese sun. Winter temperatures seldom go below 0°C.
Faro has more than 50,000 people residing within its Moorish walls. Its colonial architecture along with a spread of beaches makes it a popular tourist destination.

Overall Guide : One of Faro’s main attractions is the eighteenth-century Episcopal Palace with its unique tile decoration and pyramid-shaped roofs.  The Santo Lenho Chapel has a spectacular collection of relics and carvings lining its walls. Football fans usually flock to the Estadio... more Algarve, a 30,000-seat stadium which had hosted the Euro 2004. The Naval Museum has a fleet of model boats and galleons that will impress any marine buff.  Photograph yourself under the centuries-old Vila Adentro arch and the Carmo (or Carmel) Church which has twin bell towers and a religious sanctuary. Also visit the golden Church of Nossa Senhora Do Carmo, famed for its chapel which is adorned with the bones of more than a thousand monks and has exquisite gold-leaf designs. Off the harbour, you can find the Cidade Velha (or old city) with its beautiful walking areas with quaint cafes. A bit further is the Ria Formosa lagoon which attracts hundreds of migratory birds every year.
