To see / do

Culture and history

A majestic cathedral

A majestic cathedral

The Sé de Faro cathedral cannot be missed. One of the Algarve’s most remarkable religious sites combines Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. Inside, the altarpiece, azulejos, chapel and the tomb of António Pereira da Silva, bishop of the Algarve in the early 18th century,are most definitely worth a look .

Ancient Rome in the Algarve

In Estoi, just 10 km away from Faro, lies an archaeological site that highlights the remains of a Roman villa dating back to the 2nd century. Well-preserved baths were discovered, with marvellous sea-themed mosaics. This journey back to the past is one of the region’s most enriching.

A eerie chapel

A eerie chapel

A surprising visit awaits you at the Capela dos Ossos - the Chapel of Bones. Not for the faint-hearted. Right next to the Nossa Senhora do Carmo church, skulls and bones are set deep in the walls. As the cemetery could no longer welcome any bodies, the overflowing bones were mounted into the walls. The result is both fascinating and mournful.

Outings

Eating outside in the centre of Faro

Eating outside in the centre of Faro

Fancy having a drink or a meal out on the terrace? Rua Santo António is one of Faro’s most lively places to go. There are many nice cafés, bars and restaurants there. Sangria and regional dishes are on the menu! Rua Vasco da Gama also boasts several pleasant restaurants.

New flavours at Portas de São Pedro

The Portas de São Pedro restaurant offers typical dishes from the Algarve, as well as Portuguese tapas. The local cuisine is simple yet fresh and will delight curious travellers. There’s something for everyone: grilled seafood (octopus for instance), cured meats, cheeses and more. Faro’s many flavours will awaken your taste buds.

Gastronomy

Cataplana, a speciality from the Algarve

This Portuguese dish is one of the Algarve’s most famous. Cataplana refers both to the recipe and utensil in which it is cooked - similar to a closed wok. To prepare the dish, you need seafood, peppers, chorizo and ham or lard. The clam version is without a doubt the most appreciated.

Chocolate cake lookalike

Chocolate cake lookalike

Bolus alfarroba looks incredibly like a chocolate cake, but is far from it. Alfarroba, known as carob, is a tree from which a pulp is extracted. It is then dried and turned into flour used in cooking. Its brown colour and slightly bitter taste make it very similar to cocoa. Don't let them fool you!
