My friend and I visited the museum of the cathedral. It was very interesting and has quite some nice stuff to offer. The price is cheap and it’s definitely I must do for history/culture buffs more »
We were lucky to listen to some live music played at the cathedral and overall it has some interesting relics on the display. There is a good view from the cathedral tower over Faro. Overall great experience.
Interesting cathedral build up with bones of humans. There could be written down some informations for tourists that the history of this place gets clearer. And also it costs entrance fee
