Mini Travel Guide to Faro
Faro serves the whole of The Algarve, but the town itself is home to points of interest. The old town, still contained within Roman walls, dates back to the ninth century. Faro is a fusion of Moorish and Roman design; old cathedrals stand side-by-side with ornate gold leaf patterning.
The city is 7km from the beach, which is a long sandy spit easily accessible by footbridge from the airport.
