Old town

Good for a wander around. Lovely cobbled streets and museums/ cathedrals to look around. Lovely for an evening walk too.

The old town is really small and cute. Two hours are enough for walk around. I was here in December , and I like the Christmas lights and decorations . The temperature is 14-16 Celsius. I enjoyed it very much.

Such a wonderful town. Loved the vibes and the feel of the town. Beautiful small roads. There was a festival going on when we were there and it was wonderful to attend the same. Would recommend this town to everyone.

Walled old town with multiple entries and easily covered on foot with beautiful cobblestone roads and old buildings dotted here and there with nice small cafes and restaurants , and given the quietness with the time of the year we visited made it a fairy tale visit . All the beauty is topped with the beautiful and amazing Portuguese hospitality... More

The 'square' is a great place to eat and for entertainment a must is the Rock Bar with live music every night for free

I enjoyed the visit to Faro but beware you can easily get lost. The town is between the river with nice views and the town upto the Church that is a must to visit, with gardens to walk around. The town has nice large pedestrian walkways along with the normal narrow streets of the shops.

Lovely area to both walk around and eat, with its cobbled stones and quaint buildings and little pavement restaurants it is a must see otherwise you have not been to Faro.

The old town is a must for a wander and taking in the surroundings. We arrived on the Sunday and many places were closed, not many more opened on the Monday. It was November though!
