Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very grand and impressive, housing the old town inside. If you go at night they ate lit up and look even more impressive

Walls are covered in graffiti everywhere you go. Contemptible way to treat medieval heritage, no effort has been made to clean it off. Not worth visiting.

Walk around the outside of the walls and you can imagine how difficult it would be to attack and take this fort/town.

Muralhas de Faro does not relate to the tiled murals, which can be found at different locations in the city. Muralhas can be translated as walls. The Great Wall of China, in Portuguese, is: A Grande Muralha da China. As you walk around the old city you will encounter the walls at numerous times. It is possible to follow them around a considerable part of the Old Town, but I did not. Interesting to see.

The "Muralhas de Faro" are also known as the "Muralhas de Vila Adentro". Since the Roman times in the Iberian Peninsula, these awesome oval shaped Walls protect the historical center of Faro, the so called "Vila Adentro". As everything else, they have undergone, along the centuries, many enlargements, reconstructions, restorations and, surprisingly, a great part of it has survived up to our days. An important chapter of Faro's history has been written in these magnificent Walls. They witnessed wars, invasions, reconquests, pirates and even an earthquake! Amazing resilience! Check the Walls and its three remaining gates: "Arco da Vila" and the adjoining "Porta Árabe" (at the Arch's end), "Arco do Repouso" e "Portas do Mar" (also known as "Porta Nova"). Enjoy!

To have an easy visit of the city of Faro, the best thing to do is to drive to the location “Largo de São Francisco” which is a good sized parking place and on top is free, but it is well known, so be on time to get a spot to leave the car. And doing so you are rightaway at the “Muralhas de Faro”, This antiek walls are involving the oldest urban nucleus in the city, which they call today "Vila-Adentro" or "Cidade Velha".
They believe that the primitive town wall predates the Roman invasion of the Iberian peninsula. It got rebuilt in the 9th century, this during the reign of Ben Bekr, prince of a small Muslim kingdom that became independent from the Emirate of Cordoba.
During the Almohad period, two towers were built in one of the main entrances, a group currently known as "Arco do Repouso".
With the conquest of the city by the forces of Afonso III of Portugal (in the year 1249), its walls were rebuilt. At this stage, the urban network corresponded to two distinct nuclei: the so-called "Vila Adentro" (current parish of Santa Maria), where the religious temples, the Jewish quarter and the houses of the Christians were located; and the "Ribeira", residential area of ​​the highest social classes. In the current downtown area, Mouraria was installed, where since the year 1269, the Moors were forced to reside.

This must have been a sight in the early history of the walled city. Not that tall, but looking over the marshy bay, they must have comforted the residents. We didn't walk the entire perimeter, but what we saw was impressive.
