Savour a Portuguese break at a Faro holiday letting
While Faro is known as the gateway to the Algarve due to its large international airport, it has become a wonderful destination in its own right. Surrounded by beaches, lagoons, and historic buildings, there's plenty to keep you busy here. Also, the rest of the Algarve is within easy reach thanks to the inexpensive and reliable train system. Don't forget to sample the delicious local food and wine. What could be better than fresh fish and a crisp dry white under the Mediterranean sunshine?
Where to eat and drink in Faro
Food in Faro, and in the wider Algarve, incorporates both traditional Portuguese food and dishes with a Spanish influence. From grilled meats and fish with vegetables to tapas-style sausages and potatoes, the selection is a culinary heaven to lovers of Mediterranean food. If you prefer to spend an evening in your delightful Faro accommodation, then head to the local markets and cook up something delicious in your home away from home.
By the beach, the best restaurant around is Camané. It's considered somewhat upmarket, but the standard of food is excellent. Monte do Casal, set in a converted manor house, is run by a Michelin-trained chef who has developed a fantastically exciting menu for the beautiful surroundings. If you're looking for something more budget-friendly, A Tasca Do Joao and Adega Nova are both excellent options.
Art and culture in Faro
There are plenty of churches and historical buildings peppered around Faro's Old Town. The 18th-century cobbled streets and Moorish architecture have been well preserved and make for an enjoyable half-day of exploration. The Capela dos Ossos is an interesting yet macabre feature of the town: the church is decorated with the skeletons of over 1,000 monks.
The Jewish Heritage Centre documents Portugal's Jewish history. It highlights a range of events, from the 1755 Lisbon earthquake and the repercussions for the Jewish community to the Inquisition of the 14th century.
Excursions around Faro
The rest of the Algarve is easily accessible from Faro by train. Head west, and you'll reach more lively destinations such as Albufeira, or head east to see quiet towns such as pretty Tavira, which sits on the Spanish border. It's also possible to reach the capital, Lisbon, in just over two hours by train, and if you book in advance, you can get some fantastic deals.
The Ria Formosa is a strip of wetlands that stretches for many kilometres along the coast of the Algarve. Traversable by boat as a full- or half-day trip from Faro, it's the perfect chance to see many species of birds and fish and be back at your Faro apartment by dinner time.
