Experience Faro: what to do, what to see

While summer seems to be busy and chaotic, there is always something for those looking for more on a holiday in Faro than endless cocktails, tans and Euro-techno music. The south of Portugal will enchant and charm with its Moorish architecture and white-washed houses.

Essentials in Faro

Capela dos Ossos: This is a small chapel decorated with the bones and skulls of more than 1,200 monks. Creepy, scary but totally worth the small admission fee.

Centro Historico: The preserved old town off the harbour is a must-see with its 18th century Portuguese houses. As well, the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre, which was first established in 1851 and houses the first book ever printed in Portugal.

Praia de Faro: The king of all Faro beaches, it's several kilometres long... that's right! It's never crowded because of its size, even in the middle of summer. There are public facilities all along the beach. To reach it, don't forget a Faro car hire!

Ilha de Barreta: This beach off the coast lures many locals and visitors looking for a different kind of beach scene. Don't forget to pack sunscreen, your bathing suit and a wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off your face!
