This is worth a couple of hours to wander around and check out the buildings and the main church. Also around a couple of the entrances are local cafes where the prices are much lower that town.

We went to Old Town Faro on the train from Portimao. It is really lovely but very small. The church and museum were interesting and the views from the tower were great. It is a lovely way to spend an hour or two but there is very few restaurants in the old town and are quite crowded.

A part of Faro's history, with superb views from the tower;but note, there are 68 steep steps to reach the top.
Try to avoid the crowds and enjoy taking lovely photos. Relax.

Too easy to land at Faro and rush off to your resort. We spent a great day wandering inside the walls of the old town. Loads of history, Roman, Moorish, Medieval, etc. The Museum is worth a visit also. Some nice bars and 3 great restaurants in one of the small squares.

The streets of Old Town are not very busy on weekends it was nice to stroll around with not many people. This allowed me to take some great photos.
