Aliança Café

Monument of Public Interest -


The main entrance and facade are located in D. Francisco Gomes do Avelar Street being the building’s rear towards Marinha Street. 

The newspaper “O Heraldo” was established in 1912 on that building by Carlos Lyster Franco.

A major fire caused extensive damages leading the owner, José Pedro da Silva, to submit to the Municipality of Faro a project for the construction of a new coffee house by the architect Quintas Júnior.

It’s an example of Revivalist architecture with neoclassical influences; a three floor building where the first floor is a café and the remaining second and third floors are for housing purposes.
