What is there to do in Faro?

Faro, the capital of the Algarve, is a location filled with stunning, sandy beaches, great restaurants, bars and nightlife, excellent shopping destinations, as well as plenty of culture and breathtaking natural landscapes. Many tourists miss the pleasures of Faro town, going directly to resorts such as Albufeira, Praia da Rocha, Lagos and Praia de Luz. However, a stop in Faro town itself offers a variety of attractions for holidaymakers. This is a great destination in the Algarve, especially for a family holiday.

Take in the city’s culture with a visit to its famous cathedral. A must-see thanks to its intricate gilded carvings and decorated tiles (azulejos), Faro Cathedral also houses a collection of art and sculptures. The city’s Museu Arqueologico (Archaological Museum) and Museu Etnografico (art and history museum) also feature prominently on the list of things to see while you’re here.

What's on in Faro in spring?

There's no bad time of year to visit Faro, thanks to its year-round good weather. In April and May temperatures can reach highs of 20°C, with daily averages of 15-16°C. The Algarve is generally quieter and more family-friendly (thanks to the cooler climate) at this time of year. Spring flowers around the Algarve are in full bloom, with a beautiful natural display at the cliffs at Ponta da Piedade in Lagos.
