About this place

Faro is the capital of the Algarve. Capital is not exactly the right word for Faro because Faro is only a small city with a pleasant center. This city is definitely worth a visit, many tourists land and depart here alone and do not visit the center and that is a shame. Faro is not large, but has a pleasant center with a number of beautiful old shopping streets.

The old and walled part is also worth a look. There are a few nice restaurants here where you can have a delicious lunch or dinner. In the summer there are various festivals and music performances and there is a pleasant atmosphere.

There is the opportunity to attend live Fado music in one of the old buildings in the city center. Curious? Click here for more info . There are also two theaters in Faro, 'Teatro de Figures' and the beautiful old ' Teatro Lethes' . Teatro Lethes is a little gem and is beautiful on the inside!

Would you like to shop? Then this is possible in the 'Forum Algarve' shopping center on the west side of Faro. In the past two years, a new shopping center has been opened between Faro and Loulé, the 'MAR Shopping', it has a large outlet department.
