TOURISM

FARO | ALGARVE

In Faro there is much to explore and discover, but Faro is also a great starting point to reach other parts of the Algarve, since it is here that the International Airport of Faro – Gago Coutinho is located.

As you travel across the Algarve, from the eastern to the western part, you will be able to appreciate different and beautiful landscapes, get to know unique traditions and come into contact with very particular ways of being and speaking.

The Algarve coastline is very varied, with steep cliffs, extensive sandy beaches, jagged lagoons, salt marshes and other dune formations.

The barrocal is a transitional area between the coast and the mountains, consisting of limestone and schistose rocks. Also known as “beira-serra”, this area is the main supplier of agricultural products in the Algarve, such as medronho (strawberry tree), honey and dried fruit such as almonds and carobs.

Many people link the Algarve to its beaches, but, curiously, the mountainous area occupies 50% of the territory. This area is formed by schist and some granitic rocks. The main mountain ranges are the Serra do Espinhaço de Cão, the Serra de Monchique and the Serra do Caldeirão or de Mú.

The geographical position of the region gives it a temperate climate, with Mediterranean characteristics, with more than 3 000 hours of sunshine per year and little rainfall.

A walk through the Algarve is also a pretext for a journey back in time, to meet the countless testimonies of peoples and cultures which, throughout history, have crossed paths with the region. From the Roman presence to the long Muslim heritage, from the Christian reconquest to the epic of the Portuguese explorations, there is no shortage of reasons to rediscover signs of a remarkable historical past.

Before setting off to discover our fantastic region, from Faro you can stop by Forum Algarve to pick up the essentials for an even greater tour of the area. That’s our recommendation!
