Places to visit in Faro

Although Faro is mainly seen as an airport for the seaside resorts in the Algarve province, Faro itself has a lot to offer. There are three city gates, of which the Arco da Vila (“Town Arch”) is the most beautiful and serves as the gateway to the Cidade Velha, the old city. The main square in the centre of Faro is called Largo de Sé, which is also the name of the cathedral on the square. Just a stone's throw away is Nossa Senhora da Assunção, a former monastery that is now home to an archaeological museum.
