Faro, Portugal Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2022

Faro is the capital and largest city in Portugal’s southern region known as the Algarve, and the listings here are really for the whole region rather than just for Faro itself. This is primarily a sunshine beach resort with not much in the way of cultural offerings, although during summer it is known as a party destination. If coming from Lisbon, you’ll likely change trains in Faro, though that might be a good reason not to stay here.
