  • Located in the heart of faro, in the ancient city intramuros, is very beautiful, and one of the monuments more sought after by tourists.

  • Definitely not visit without the tower to climb. Cathedral itself also very pretty to look at. Bones Chapel not as spectacular. Then you better go to another chapel also in faro.

  • Fair price, we would have paid more... Small Cathedral. Nice view of the Bell Tower. The inside is very beautiful, very baroque!

  • Wanted to visit but the square was closed due to a festival that required a 15 euro ticket. Could not visit the museum either. Very disappointed.
  • We were yelled at and told to leave the church straight after mass - so don't expect a warm welcome. We were pointed to a pitch-black exit hall where my wife fell down steps trying to leave.
  • This cathedral have very beautiful altars which you must visit. Also the tower is a must “climb” of which you will see the beautiful marina view of Caro.
  • This is the one of the most interesting places in Faro.
  • Lovely square, steeped in history

Where to stay in Faro

As the region's biggest city and one of the country's national hot spots for nightlife, vacations, and the great outdoors, Faro features a huge array of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels. Most of the larger international chains sit within the blocks surrounding the city harbor, and although staying in one can be pricey, it puts you within easy walking distance of the city's selection of bars, restaurants, clubs, and other establishments. For more budget-friendly accommodations check out a family-run inn, a bed and breakfast, or the opportunity to simply rent an extra room from a local--all of which are extremely common in Faro. These accommodations may be a little farther outside the city center, but you'll get a quiet nook in a nearby residential neighborhood away from the city bustle.
