Compare cheap flights from Singapore to Faro
Air travel in the city is served by Faro Airport, also known as Algarve Airport. The airport receives package tour flights and discount airlines from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and different parts of Europe. It becomes particularly busy during the March to October period or the summer months. On average, the airport handles around 6 million passenger arrivals annually. It serves as a hub for Ryanair.
A Summer Destination
As mentioned, Faro’s airport becomes quite busy during the summer season as tourists from northern Europe and the United Kingdom frequent Faro’s beaches. Faro serves as a gateway for those who want to explore other exciting areas in the Algarve region. Many of the city’s residents can speak English, partly earning Faro, in a way, the reputation of being friendlier than other parts of Southern Europe.
Landmarks and Attractions
Faro may be small but it has enough sites to amuse tourists from different parts of the world. The city’s beaches are arguably its main tourist attraction, but Faro also offers other attractions such as the 30,000-seater stadium called Estadio Algarve, the Louletano Desportos Clube, and the macabre Capela dos Ossos chapel in the Igreja do Carmo church. Tourists can also take a boat trip into Rio Formosa. Other places of interest in the city are the well-preserved Centro Historico and the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre that is known as the only remaining souvenir of the first post-inquisition Jewish presence in the Portuguese territory.
