Destination guide

An alluring city on Portugal's Algarve coast

As the capital district of southern Portugal's Algarve region, the city of Faro mixes rich history and dynamic landscape. As you walk through the neoclassical Arco da Vila archway into Faro's old town, you'll be greeted with cobbled streets, a lively atmosphere, and quirky sites that have to be seen to be believed (bone chapel, anyone?). Take a look at Faro District vacation rentals in the summer for prime beach weather, but don't rule out the off seasons, either—the Algarve has plenty to offer all year long.

Things to do

Faro's finest—from beaches to bone chapels

The Arco da Vila's welcoming archway is a sight worth noting in itself, with its neoclassical design incorporating the remains of an original Moorish wall. Nearby, you'll find the 13th-century Faro Cathedral, a Roman Catholic cathedral and National Monument of Portugal. Got a taste for the macabre? Then head to the Igreja do Carmo, an 18th-century Catholic church with a small chapel built out of the bones and skulls of monks. For a more traditional experience, The Municipal Museum is always worth a visit. Housed in a 16th-century convent, the museum features prehistoric and medieval artifacts, as well as religious art.


A liferaft of authenticity in a sea of resort towns

The Faro District feels more authentically Portuguese than its resort-focused neighbors. Along with its proximity to some of Europe's prettiest beaches, there's also a buzzing marina, attractive parks and plazas, and a historic old town with cobbled lanes and outdoor dining. If you'd rather spend your day on the beach, you can still explore Faro at night—the city's known for its nightlife and theatre scene. Outdoor lovers should head to the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, and take a boat ride to the sandy islands of Ilha de Faro and Ilha da Barreta.


A beloved summer spot that's just as fab in winter

The beaches of the Algarve make this a beloved summertime destination. Summer starts early and ends late in southern Portugal, but be prepared for high prices and large crowds from May through September. December through March are crisp but bright, and you'll find lower prices on Faro District vacation rentals in winter. The region is also known for its golf courses, many of which are open throughout the year. Consider the cooler months of April and October, when you'll find the days are still bright and sunny, and you can dine al fresco.

Natural features

Running up that hill—scenic Faro, from hillsides to the sea

Faro District is divided into 2 areas: the Atlantic coastline, which is part of the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, and the barrocal, featuring rolling hills and lush valleys. Parque Natural is one of Portugal's natural wonders, and with a beach close to downtown, it's a definite must-see. The sandy beaches of Faro offer crystal blue waters, dramatic cliffs, and sandy shorelines, separating the Ria Formosa river and the Atlantic Ocean. Throughout the park, the river also leads to lagoons, sandy dunes, and small islands, and welcomes a wide array of aquatic migratory birds.
