We were lucky to listen to some live music played at the cathedral and overall it has some interesting relics on the display. There is a good view from the cathedral tower over Faro. Overall great experience.
Interesting cathedral build up with bones of humans. There could be written down some informations for tourists that the history of this place gets clearer. And also it costs entrance fee
This is the most beautiful building with loads of character and history. The detail within is so interesting and awesome. Very well worth the visit. The view from the bell tower is amazing.
I didn't go inside as i didn't have time, its a beautiful area and very pretty and clean outside. Its in a great location as well
A very nice cathedral. You can climb on the bell tower and get a beautiful view of the city. The entrance is only €3,50 for adults, which must be paid in cash.
