Discover Faro, a city that blends untamed natural wonders with the hustle and bustle of the third international entry point of Portugal. The cosmopolitan city offers you a wide range of activities, whether you’re in the mood for some wild exploring sessions or some peaceful strolls through the old part of the city, there’s always an option. Since pictures (and nowadays video) are worth more than words we leave here a little sneak peek of what you can uncover there. If you want to discover more, book a tuk tuk tour and come on an adventure!
Built between 1713 and 1719, Carmo Church is one of the main cultural tourist attractions in Faro. The Chapel of Bones, located in the back of the church, is one of the attention-grabbing points since its walls are covered in bones belonging to monks who lived and served in the city. Besides this spooky chapel, the Church in itself is also worthy of visiting due to its intricately carved altar and simple but beautiful baroque front.
Roman Ruins of Milreu
The Roman Ruins of Milreu are an interesting stopping point in Estoi, a little traditional village located just outside of Faro. Excavated in 1877 and classified as a national monument in 1910, this tourist attraction is rich in beautiful tile work, several ceramic findings and decorative sculptures. If you want to be transported back to the Roman era book the “Estoi Village” tour! It’ll be a fun and memorable tour.
Ria Formosa Natural Park
This is the wild side of Faro, there’s no other way to put it. The deserted sandy beaches, labyrinthic canals, salt marshes and lonely islands transport you to a new dimension while you appreciate the stunning and untouched scenery. Here you can observe many bird species, migratory or local, and enjoy some peace and quiet away from the busy city. Here’s a tip: book the “Ria Formosa” tuk tuk tour and come explore this natural beauty.
I loved my tour with Marco! He was really friendly and this tour was the highlight of the trip. We got to see every nook and cranny of the city, would highly recommend!
Lisbon is one of most beautiful cities of Europe, I live in Lisbon for a while now, but only after this Tuk Tuk tour I have been able to access the most amazing hidden places of the city. You will never get there if you take a bus or tram.
