Often undervalued, Faro is considered only as an entry point into southern Portugal through the airport. However, customs, local gastronomy, cultural events , nightlife, Ria Formosa and its beaches are part of the many charms that the capital of the Algarve has to offer.
Faro is located on the edge of the Ria Formosa Natural Park
A series of saltwater lagoons and mudflats are the haven for migratory birds and wildlife.
Smell the sea air and be amazed by the Churches, convents, hermitages, arches, doors and alleys hiding stories of struggles, wars, earthquakes and conquests but also of enchanted Moors, never-forgotten loves and brave knights.
