Faro Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


This is the capital of the Algarve. The town used to live off the exploitation of the salt collected from the salt marshes of the ria, fishing (tuna and sardine), cork and marble work and the industries of food, plastics and construction. With its international airport, Faro has now become the gateway to the Algarve. Its spa resorts are busy all year round. The vast beach, laid out on an island, attracts many tourists.
