Hotel Faro

Quartos e Hóspedes


Located in the heart of the city, facing the riverside, Hotel Faro is the ideal starting point to explore Faro. The proximity to Ria Formosa and the sunny climate give the city a special light and invite you to walk and discover monuments, gardens, crafts, and markets.
Guided by a guide that our hotel will be happy to recommend and book for you, we suggest you start with Faro's historic area, surrounded by the great walls of Muslim origin, known as Vila Adentro. Discover the storks that inhabit the top of the Ionic columns of Arco da Vila, explore the narrow streets within the walls, be amazed by the Romanesque-Gothic portal of the Sé Church, visit the magnificent cloisters of the Municipal Museum, get lost exploring the Art Galleries, and ask about the Arco do Repouso and the legend that a enchanted Moorish princess still lives there.
If you want to see more of our city, we recommend that you request a Tuk-Tuk ride or rent a bike at the hotel's reception and head towards Teatro Lethes, included in the European Network of Historic Theaters, dating back to 1855 and maintaining its original decoration with frescoes on the ceiling, red velvet chairs, and gilded boxes! The theater operates throughout the year with a rich agenda of theater, dance, and music events. The city is also equipped with a modern theater - Teatro Municipal das Figuras - which presents a diverse schedule of events. In the complex of buildings that make up Teatro das Figuras, discover the house whose exuberant decoration on the facade gives it its name: Casa das Figuras.
As you continue your stroll, you can discover the Jewish Cemetery of Faro, which is the only record of the Jewish community established in the city between the beginning of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Then head to the Carmo Church, which stands out for its baroque facade painted in yellow and white, with large towers and where you can visit the Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones).
Indeed, Faro is a city with an enviable architectural heritage. There are many chapels, palaces, and mansions that shape the streets of the city. At every step, you will discover a new building, an architectural detail, or a coat of arms that tells the history of the place. As soon as you leave Hotel Faro, in Jardim Manuel Bivar, the 19th-century Bandstand and the building of the Banco de Portugal, with its Islamic-inspired facade, delight the eye. If you prefer a stroll outside the city center, we suggest you take a Tuk-Tuk to the Ermida de Santo António do Alto and visit the Palácio Fialho, an imposing building from 1913 that houses the Colégio de Nossa Senhora do Alto. You can also take a Tuk-tuk to the village of Estoi and visit the Roman Ruins of Milreu.
And if, after this suggested itinerary through the city, offered by Hotel Faro, you are still not convinced, get to know the great events that Faro has to offer throughout the year. Music, dance, theater, cinema, gastronomy... the choice is yours! Faro is a city with life all year round.
