Faro, the administrative center of the Algarve region, often serves as the entry point for sun-seekers drawn to Portugal's southern coastline. However, this city has a charisma that goes beyond its role as a transit hub. Faro's old town, surrounded by ancient walls, houses cobbled streets, well-preserved medieval architecture, and a bustling marina, all under the watchful gaze of its grand cathedral. As night falls, the city's modern districts come alive with lively bars, restaurants, and theaters, offering a contemporary contrast to its historic core.
