Holidays in Faro

In the south of Portugal, on the Algarve coast

Located south of Portugal, in the region of {Algarve}{601}}, Faro is a beautiful coastal town of approximately 64,500 inhabitants that holds the capital of the district of the same name. Surrounded by the municipalities of São Bras de Alportel, Olhão and Loule, and only 11 km from Huelva, 198 km from Sevilla and 278 km from Lisbon. In addition, the Formosa Estuary is located in the surrounding area. An immense swamp covering an area of 18,400 hectares and 60 km from the river Ancão to the beach of Manta Rota. This is a protected area made up of a cordon of dunes formed by the peninsulas of Faro and Cacela, and five sand barrier islands. If you decide to book a holiday home in Faro, don't hesitate to visit it.

A walled city surrounded by the estuary of Formosa

Despite the attacks by English pirates and the consequences of the 1755 earthquake, Faro still retains much of the walls surrounding its historic centre. Delimited to the north by the Marina and Rua de la Misericordia, to the east by Rua y Largo de San Francisco, and to the south and southwest by Rua Formosa. Most of the interesting historic buildings are around the Cathedral Square, but the ruins of the medieval castle are also worth a visit to enjoy the gardens of the Plaza de San Francisco, which offer magnificent views of the natural park. All this surrounded by the beauty of the estuary landscape and by its splendid beaches. If you want to make cultural visits, do not hesitate to reserve your rental in the centre of Faro.

Lighthouse for those looking for paradisiacal beaches

Faro's beach is the best in the whole region, partly because it is one of the least urbanized. Its golden sands stretch for 5 km along the edge of Faro Island and at the back are the lagoons, marshes and lowlands of the Ria Formosa Natural Park that flood during high tide. The fact that it is not yet a well known destination for foreign tourists makes it a true oasis of tranquillity. This contrasts with the rest of the beaches of the Algarve, which are much more crowded. Therefore, it is an ideal place for those who want to enjoy the beach but in a much more relaxed and relaxed way.

Lighthouse for birdwatchers

To the northeast of the Isla de Faro is the Ria Formosa Natural Park. An extensive protected area offering a landscape of saltwater lagoons and marshes. The ideal habitat for a great variety of migratory birds and for a multitude of marine species that require very specific conditions. But in addition to watching the birds, you can discover more about the fishing tradition of the Portuguese, who come to the area in search of mussels, clams and other molluscs at low tide.

Did you know that one of the most unusual places in Faro is the Capela dos Ossos (chapel of the bones)? When the city's cemeteries became saturated, many bones were incorporated into the city's designs, giving it a very unusual and rather sinister aesthetic.
1. Immerse yourself in the past of the locality through its heritage

Although Faro was severely affected by the 1755 earthquake, it now conserves a rich architectural and monumental heritage that reflects the important role the city has played since the 16th century, when it was elevated to the status of a city. The most emblematic are the castle and the cathedral, but during your stay you cannot miss the visit to the Estoi Palace, the Jewish cemetery colony, the San Sebastian hermitage, the Belmarço Palace, the Capuchin Convent and the churches of San Francisco, Santa Barbara and San Pedro.

2. Enjoy the sea practicing nautical activities

Although the main activities on Faro beach are relaxing and sunbathing, those more active travellers will also find some activities to have fun with. In the locality there is a surf school where you can take lessons and rent the equipment. But you can also rent kayaks and paddling boards standing at the Nautical Centre.

3. Go shopping at the Algarve Forum

The Algarve Forum is the largest shopping centre in the region. It is worth a visit just to admire the building, inspired by the historic centre of Faro. In addition, if you're a big shopper, you'll find a real paradise, with 200 shops, boutiques, a supermarket and a family leisure centre. Ideal for both shopping and spending the day with the children.

4. Try Lingueirão's exquisite rice

The cuisine of Faro has its origins in the times when the area was under Roman and Arab domination. One of the main attractions of the town. Their dishes are made with products from both the sea and the land, creating unique flavours and aromas. One of its most representative dishes is Lingueirão rice (rice with knives), which you should not miss the opportunity to try during your stay. And for dessert, nothing better than an exquisite sweet "Don Rodrigo", made with almonds and egg yolks.
