Walk the cobbled streets of Old Town Faro and encounter centuries-old architectural sights, Roman passages, cozy cafes, and a museum with archaeological findings. The site features the oldest horseshoe arch in Portugal and a 16th-century convent. Note the many houses decorated by flowers as well as the meandering paths and alleys; take a stroll down the shopping lane at the town center. You can have a meal at one of the typical Algarvian restaurants, or just grab a coffee along the riverfront.

I loved staying in Faro for 10 days! there is so much to see and do, you will not be bored. I Loved the old town which has so many pretty corners, streets and cafés. For sure worth a visit more »
Really nice little streets with lovely restaurants and bars. You can go onto the city walls for 25 cent per person - do that!!! Really great view and the guys have a new project that involves you... more »
Fairly complete set of old town walls. Nice to wander the streets and stop off at quaint bars and restaurants. Some of the buildings are falling down but they are making some effort to restore them. Great views of the river and restaurants from the bar at the top of the walls. Also a tower to climb and small museums.
It's nice but you won't miss anything of you don't see it
