Discover Faro

Faro is a historic city located in the southernmost region of Portugal, known as the Algarve, which is beloved for its long stretches of golden sand beaches, clear waters, and rugged cliffs. Needless to say, this makes it a popular destination for beach goers, surfers, and water sports enthusiasts. Faro serves as the capital of the Algarve and acts as the main getaway to the region that includes Albufeira, Luz, and Carvoeiro.

It has a population of about 64,000 people has a rich history dating back to Roman times, with strong influences from the Moors and the Portuguese.

Why Visit Faro with FlixBus?

Even though Faro has fascinating tourist attractions, it’s generally overlooked by most of the visitors who head to more popular resort towns, such as Albufeira and Lagos – so it still might be considered a rather insider tip for exploring the depths of Portuguese culture. One of the standout features of Faro is its old town, surrounded by medieval walls and filled with charming narrow streets, historic buildings, and quaint squares. Faro also has an impressive cathedral, the Sé de Faro, dating back to the 13th century, and the impressive Igreja do Carmo, a church that showcases the region's traditional azulejo tiles (painted tin-glazed ceramic tiles).

When to Visit Faro

The best times to schedule a vacation to Faro are late spring (April to June), and early fall (September to October) when the weather is warm (albeit sometimes unpredictably rainy and cool), but the crowds are lighter. In the peak summer season, crowds and prices can expand extensively. The best-loved cultural events include the Faro International Motorcycle Rally in July and the Alameda Beer Festival in August. Beachgoers will prefer to visit in July and August when the weather is hot and the sea is warm, while nature lovers should plan their visit between September and November to take advantage of the region's beautiful fall foliage.

Top Attractions in Faro

One of Faro’s most iconic landmarks is the Sé de Faro, a Gothic-style cathedral built in the 13th century that boasts stunning panoramic views of the city from its bell tower. The city's historic old town is another must-visit. A quick list of other notable places:

  • Chapel of Bones: eerie but fascinating chapel, located in the Church of St. Francis, is decorated with human bones.
  • Ria Formosa Natural Park: Take a boat tour or rent a bike to explore this beautiful nature reserve.
  • Visit the islands: Take a short ferry ride to the nearby islands of Farol, Culatra, and Deserta for some beautiful beaches and peaceful scenery.
  • Attend a Fado performance: Fado is a traditional Portuguese music style, and you can catch a live performance at one of the local bars or restaurants.
  • For other entertainment options, check out the Algarve's biggest shopping centre, Forum Algarve, with an array of shops, restaurants, and cinemas. The rooftop bar and pool at the Hotel Faro there offers great views of the city's harbour.

Getting Around Faro

Faro has a decent public transportation system that includes buses, trains, and taxis. The city's bus network covers the entire city, and tickets can be purchased onboard or at kiosks around the city. Trains connect Faro to other parts of the Algarve and the rest of Portugal, and tickets can be purchased at train stations or online. Taxis are also widely available, and fares are regulated by law. It's recommended to plan journeys in advance using public transportation websites or apps, as bus and train frequencies vary depending on the time of day and day of the week.

Food and Drink in Faro

Faro is appreciated for its fantastic seafood, including grilled sardines, octopus salad, and cataplana (seafood stew). Other local favourite dishes include conquilhas à Algarvia (small clams cooked in garlic, white wine, and cilantro, served with bread) and arroz de lingueirão (rice cooked with a type of razor clam, and tomato sauce).

Faro also has a vibrant cafe culture, with plenty of quaint and authentic cafes offering traditional pastries such as pastel de nata (custard tarts) and bolo de mel (honey cake). Head to the old town area to find plenty of local establishments serving traditional Algarvian cuisine. Beer lovers won’t want to miss the annual Alameda Beer Festival in August, featuring local and international craft beers and live music.

Nightlife and Entertainment in Faro

As a university city Faro has an active nightlife all year round, making it the perfect location not just for reckless summer abandon, but also for off-season evening activity. In any case, the city’s nightlife is centred very much around the activities of its student population. The old town is a popular area for nightlife, with many bars and cafes serving traditional Portuguese wines and spirits. The marina is another great spot to enjoy a night out, with many bars and restaurants overlooking the harbour. In the summer months, the Alameda Beer Festival and Faro International Motorcycle Rally are popular events that offer visitors the chance to enjoy live music, street food, and cold drinks. Visitors looking for a unique after-dark experience can take a boat trip to the Ria Formosa Natural Park to see the nocturnal wildlife or go stargazing at the nearby Dark Sky Alqueva Reserve.
