The best way to get acquainted with the city is to wonder around its streets.
We propose a walk in the City’s Downtown (Route 1 – The Other Side of the City Centre) or in the Historic Quarters (Route 2 – The Old Town).
No less interesting are the routes in the villages of Estoi (Route 3 – The Village of Estoi ) and Santa Barbara de Nexe (Route 4 – Santa Bárbara de Nexe and the Views).
Apart from having a wide architectural and religious heritage, Faro is a municipality set in the midst of an outstanding natural setting, featuring all requirements for the practise of nautical and nature tourism.
