  • 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
