The Igreja do Carmo and its infamous bone chapel, though not for the faint hearted, is a macabre yet beautiful piece of architecture. As well as this, no trip to Faro would be complete without a trek around the ancient Moorish walls that surround much of the city, including the ornate Arco da Vila gate; the ancient gateway to the city.

If you're travelling with your family, you'll have a abundance of things to do, too. One of the crowning jewels of Faro is the Ria Formosa nature reserve. A vast, sprawling area that boasts unique wildlife you'll only find in this corner of the world. Being a protected site, you'll be able to see wildlife thriving in its natural habitat. It's a sight not to be missed.

If you're looking to indulge your sense of adventure and your thrill seeking side, all while still keeping it family friendly, the Aqualand Water Park just a short distance from the city centre. Here you'll find an enormous park dedicated to fun, slides, rapids, wave pools, hidden grottos, and even a dedicated surfing area.

In the evening, the restaurants fill up, but the friendly locals will always do their best to accommodate extra guests. The Rua do Prior street particularly boasts an eclectic night life mixing past and present, all with the same welcoming and friendly atmosphere the city offers by day.
