Why you should go

Whether you’re stopping over or just passing through onto somewhere else in the Algarve, Faro is the perfect connecting point to explore Portugal. Whether you’re a sun seeker or city breaker, the Algarve is a popular destination for those looking to bask in sunshine, take in stunning architecture or sample local cuisines. There’s also something for everyone; if you’re a wanderer, there’s plenty of historical streets to walk down and for those looking for a relaxing holiday, you’re spoilt for choice in terms of resorts.

If you’re after a cultural experience, venture to Faro itself where Museo Municipal has lots of historical artefacts to view, including works by Carlos Filipe Porfíro, depicting local legends. It’s also worth visiting the Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Carmo, a gorgeous baroque church. Behind it is Capela dos Ossos, a curious 19th century chapel built from the bones and skulls of more than 1,000 monks.

Portugal has some of the most impressive coasts in the whole of Europe, with beaches hidden by natural limestone rocks. Whether you’re looking to spot some dolphins or just discover the variety of different coves, spend your trip looking out onto the Atlantic and visit beaches such as Praia da Marinha or Praia da Falésia.

When you should go

Depending on what you want to get out of your trip, there are various times in the year when you will be best suited to visiting Portugal. Springtime is filled with fresh blooms and wild waves perfect for surfing, whilst summer temperatures from June to September can reach up to 30°C, making this the most popular time to travel.

Where you should stay

Faro’s surrounding areas have plenty to offer, and the Algarve itself has countless resorts and long stretches of beaches which are ideal for sun worshippers. Albufeira is a livelier destination which also has a picturesque old town that’s definitely worth a visit! Lagos is known for its impressive 16th century architecture and chilled out beach, whilst Olhos D’Agua is the place to be if you fancy sampling the catch of the day in one of its great eateries in the harbour.

Don’t miss!

The uniqueness and originality of southern Portugal will make your holiday one to remember, but don’t forget to take a look at these secrets off the beaten track:
