This is one of the first areas of Faro we visited after arriving in the city. Although fairly busy when we were there, it still had that relaxed atmosphere about it. Not a huge area, so it doesn't take a long time to cover. The...More

You can sit and watch the world go by or go to the nearby Marina and watch the sunset. Lots of little Restaurants and bars to visit and shops open until late on Fridays. Sometimes musicians on the corners to add to the ambiance.

A lovely cobble stoned area where you can eat at a number of restaurants and shop a bit as well. The evenings are charming and have great atmosphere. The sea breeze makes the place beautiful.

There are some very nice shops and restaurants in this area. The walkways are done in small mosaic-like cobblestones in traditional designs. Great atmosphere in the evenings. Some very pricey shops mixed with great bargains.
