Faro

Faro city is popular as a tourist spot, in summer, for its beaches and climate. Ilha de Faro, Culatra, Farol and Ilha Deserta are examples of the most sought after. But it has also become more and more cosmopolitan and is visited by other assets: its picturesque historic center, full of life, the castle and walls, as well as an array of buildings of great historical and architectural value. Also not to be missed is the Ria Formosa Natural Park, with 60 kilometers of channels, marshes, salt pans and five islets: Barreta, Culatra, Armona, Tavira and Cabanas. A boat trip is one of the best ways to discover this natural heritage. In the restaurants, you can find regional delicacies, such as razor clam rice and the famous Dom-Rodrigos sweets.
