“Worth a quick visit for the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

You won't spend too much time up there, but the 3 Euro entry fee for the view of the roof of the cathedral is worth it. The stairs are steep and narrow, but 30 seconds and you're up there.

Well worth a visit while in Faro.
Not large but very beautiful inside in an extravagant sort of way.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

If you've travelled around europe as extensively as I have you will realise that this is nothing special. Nice catherdral can spend all but 10 minutes here though. Nice square and views at the top especially on a clear day.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Having travelled extensively around Europe found this cathedral average.
This was not helped by the attitude of the staff who opened the cathedral at 10am and then at 10:10am stated the cathedral was shut and subsequently kicked us out.
Didn't get a chance to climb up to the top and have a look at the views mentioned by other travellers.
