Faro was not on my plan to travel but I was stuck here one night because there weren't any buses from here to Seville, Spain until the next morning. I am glad I got to enjoy a small town Portgual for 1 night and bought port wine from here.

I didn't rate Faro as a destination very much but I think that is mainly because it is not designed for tourists such as myself. This is a family place, with large resort style hotels on the outskirts and some fantastic beaches nearby. There is little in the way of culture on the Algarve but plenty to keep children entertained from water parks to zoos. That said, there are some really nice restaurants in the town and the main waterfront square plays host to arts and crafts markets that are nice to explore.
