Faro - Description
Particularly attractive is the old part of the city surrounded still by the Roman walls which date back to the 9th. Inside a spacious open square that was once the site of the Roman Forum is a 13th Century Cathedral that faces the 18th Century Episcopal palace. An interesting building is the neighbouring 16th Century Convent that is now turned into the home of the city’s archaeological museum. Within it is a section devoted to the Arab occupation. The "golden" church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo is claimed to be the best example of gold-leaf woodwork in southern Portugal. It also contains the macabre spectacle of a chapel lined with the bones from over 1.200 monks! Next to the small boat basin bordering the Praça de Dom Francisco Gomes is a small Naval Museum composed of scale model boats and galleons showing the maritime history of the coast. There is also the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre which consists of a cemetery and a small museum. Much of the city is now composed of apartments and there are attractive shops and a particularly artistic theatre. Faro is also the home of the Ria Formosa lagoon, a nature reserve of over 17.000 hectares and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods.
The beach is almost 7 Kms distant from the city and is a long sandy spit reached by crossing a bridge not far from the International Airport. The municipal council has an active cultural department organizing different and various events during the year.

Reviews of this property
Nice and cosy appartement. Clean, well located and complete (airco/WiFi).
Beautiful beaches and nice town within reach. No need to hire a car, everything within walking distance.
Great appartment and very well located. Sylvie is been really kind with us and we won't doubt to repeat with her if we come back again to Faro!
Nice apartment, good facilities, good location.
Schönes Appartement, gute Ausstattung, gute Lage.
I liked the place a lot. Everything was clean and it was equipped with all you need. Location couldn't be better: A few steps to the harbour and the centre. Sylvie was a great host and she can recommend you some great places in the area.
We went in the end of September and it was like you had endless beaches for yourself on the island's by Faro's coast.
Nous avons aimé la situation de l'appartement, très bien placé, central et dans un quartier charmant et calme
Dommage, que nous n'avons vu Sylvie que pour la remise des clefs. Elle n'habite pas sur les lieux... je précise cela pour ceux qui , comme nous, aime le contact avec les personnes chez qui elles louent.
Cela ne devant rien enlever à la qualité de cet appartement !!!
