Car hire in Faro
Hiring a car in Faro
Often known as the gateway to the Algarve due to its busy international airport, Faro is much more than just a jumping off point. This charming city lies a few kms down the A22 motorway from the airport. You’ll find a picturesque old town, complete with pedestrian lanes and cafes with outdoor seating. These are perfect for watching the world go by in a pleasant corner of Portugal.
Faro offers plenty of other attractions to keep visitors entertained. The soaring cathedral may be the most imposing place of worship in the city, but the 18th-century Carmo church holds quite a secret. The Chapel of Bones that lies within its grounds is decorated entirely with the skeletons of 1,000 monks.
