The most well-known city in the Algarve, Faro boasts a cliffside location with popular beaches and a thriving cultural scene. The regional capital is full of parks, squares, walkways, and cafes, as well as many historical sites. The archeological museum, palace, cathedral, bone chapel, and Roman ruins have made what was once a small fishing village into a popular tourist destination. Visit the city's sandy beaches by day and its bars and theaters by night, which are especially lively due to the local student population. Faro is in Faro District.
