Algarve Region's largest fishing port, Olhao occupies a strategically important coastal area inhabited since prehistoric times.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Faro Cathedral and Igreja de Sao Lourenco de Almancil. Igreja do Carmo and Galeria Municipal Trem are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Olhao side-trips: Praia de Monte Gordo (in Monte Gordo), Praia Verde (in Castro Marim) and Ponte Romana (in Tavira). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Ilha da Fuzeta, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Cacela Velha, steep yourself in history at Muralhas de Faro, and browse the fresh offerings at Mercado Municipal de Loulé (Desde 1908).

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Olhao trip itinerary maker.

Faro to Olhao is an approximately half hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in October, and nighttime lows around 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can go by car to Lagos.
