This is a sweet little area to wander through, but it's hardly a must-see. The architecture is a good example of the period but probably only of interest to enthusiasts.

A compact area in which to leisurely stroll, drink in the architecture, rich history and local colour. Enjoy the cobblestones, painted tiles, cathedral tower and walls. Lovely al fresco restaurant dinner. Check out storks nesting at the main arch!

We had a great time, crusing on the water and walk in town had a relaxing lunch, a late lunch in the marina for great prices.

Very peaceful, little traffic and a few good restaurants here too. Good views from the top of the cathedral, not too many steps either.

The walled part of this small city if very small. The cobbled lanes go around the central cathedral, the castle is off limits as it is derelict. Very nice walk, you can enter the cathedral for 3.50 euro per person. Great views from the top.

This is very compact and easily walked round in a day. The cathedral is the high spot.Go up to the roof of the tower for wonderful 360° views.

Response from Susi L | Reviewed this property |
You can travel on the train, but bus would be more direct. The train station in Albufiera is about 8 miles from the town. So it would be easier to catch a bus.
Would it be betterave to Stayner in Albufeira rater than Faro? Is there more to visit and do?
