Faro is the beautiful capital city of Algarve and Portugal’s southernmost city. Many times overlooked as just a stop-by at the airport, Faro has a charm of is well worth discovering. The delightful historic centre of Faro is encircled by medieval city walls and contains a Gothic cathedral, ancient arch, and cobbled pedestrian streets. Outside of the city wall, you will find a modern city, with a pedestrian shopping area with cafes and restaurants that soothe any tastebud’s desire. As the capital of the Algarve, it was one of the areas of Portugal that stood longer under Muslim Moorish rule, and its influence on the local culture and traditional architecture is undeniable. So much so that once it was conquered by the Portuguese kings, who called themselves kings of Portugal and the Algarves.
