Sé Catedral de Faro
Of the primitive Romanesque-Gothic construction, only the clock tower and two chapels on the cross remain. A looting and a fire, in 1596, required major works, continued later due to the earthquakes of 1722 and 1755. The church shows several influences: Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
