Beautiful Place!

A beautiful place, with some nice places to eat and have a drink. The old buildings are certainly something to take a look at if you are around the area!

For the second year in a row we spent a couple of evenings in the Old Faro Town (mainly for diners). And every evening again we've found the same pleasant, quiet atmosphere around the little squares that we love when we go for a nice diner on a terrace, after a day at the beach. Several restaurants offer great quality... More

Very pretty and quite old town. Only bad point was that we had z small baby in a buggy which was not very practical. The cobblestones are to big and bumpy to use a buggy comfortably.

Lovely place, you get a real sense of Portugal as it once was. Cobbled streets so make sure you have comfortable shoes on! Great photo opportunities

Very quaint old town. Interesting restaurants within the walls. Many old disused buildings. Feels like the town time forgot. I loved its authenticity

Quiet, relaxed, plenty to see and lots of nice eateries. I found myself walking or rather mooching around for hours. So relaxing.

Faro is a beach destination. However, the old part of town is actually breathtaking. It's a great place to have a stroll, see the museums, the old church and sit on a terrasse drinking a nice glass of white wine (or Porto!). If you're lucky, someone will start playing some Fado.

Very pretty town but not much to do. We walked around the castle walls and then through the old town. Very clean and white. The highlight was the visit to the bone chapel. Very small but for €2 worth a quick look.

Very laid back atmosphere, pretty squares with blossoming trees and loads of small cafes, bars and restaurants.
