THE CAPITAL OF THE ALGARVE - FARO
In the heart of the Ria Formosa we find Faro, the capital of the Algarve and the gateway to the south of Portugal. Situated on the coast, this destination is blessed with a wealth of culture and a stunning location.
One of the main points to visit in Faro is the old town. It is a historic legacy that is a small neighborhood inside the castle and easily recognized by its huge wall. A place with a lot of history and culture, where there are numerous attractions such as the Arco da Vila, the Municipal Museum whose convent setting only adds to its fascination, the Catedral da Sé and its splendid tower that provides a sensational view of the city and the Ria Formosa, and the various restaurants of regional cuisine that are scattered within this fascinating village where tourists can relax and enjoy the scenery.
Therefore, the connection with the Ria Formosa makes the city have a busy and colorful port. From the marina, fishing boats and pleasure craft ply the narrow channels that wind towards the open sea, passing through dense marshes, deserted islets, and islands along the coast. The Ria wetlands are among the most important natural habitats in Europe and attract a variety of seabirds and other wildlife.
