Algarve’s cultural capital
Faro is the key cultural centre of Portugal’s famous Algarve region. The last Moorish holdout in the country, the city is steeped in history, with cobbled streets and ancient architecture within arm’s reach of an upmarket modern marina and Faro’s famous Old Town nightlife.
This picturesque Portuguese city is an unmissable travel destination for everyone from culture vultures to partygoers and outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy al fresco dining and drinks or explore deserted islands, turquoise lagoons and the nearby Ria Formosa Natural Park. Or, indulge in a spot of golf, as the Algarve is home to more than 40 golf courses, including many international award-winning venues.
