About Faro :
Faro is the administrative centre of the Algarve region with a population exceeding 40.000 people. The city has both Roman and Arab ruins, but most of the attractive older buildings have been built after the catastrophic earthquake of 1755. During the 500 years of Moorish occupation the city, then named Ossónoba became an important trading port. With the decline of the former capital Silves, Faro took over the role of the administration for the whole Algarve.
The old part of Faro, still surrounded by Roman walls, continuously attracts tourists from all over. You can still see the open square that once used to be the Roman Forum.
At the sea side Faro is surrounded by the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve of 17 hectares and stopping place for migrating birds. Faro airport connects the Algarve with most European capitals by direct flights and handles several million passengers a year. Faro has a few very particular beaches, one of them is an isolated sandy beach, on the island Ilha Deserta opposite Faro. (Access only by ferryboat from Faro), and then there is Praia de Faro, an endless sandy beach on the Ilha de Faro peninsula with access from Faro by a one-lane bridge. You can walk for miles to the west up to Vilamoura.
