Faro, the Algarves capital, is a city of perhaps 50,000 located about 30 miles (50 km) west of the Spanish border. Besides the usual administrative buildings, stores, hotels and artisan shops, it is a fishing port, and the site of the University of the Algarve. There is a convenient railway station, and most visitors to the Algarve land at its international airport.

Faro has been occupied at least since Roman times, with the Moors developing it as a port until they were expelled by the same King Afonso who recaptured Silves. Most of the artifacts from these periods were destroyed by the earthquake of 1755 or periodic raids by booty-seeking crusaders and sea-borne raiders. For example, about 400 years ago the bishops fine library was "liberated" and "relocated" to Oxford, where it became part of the Bodleian Library.

The most interesting parts are the old walled area beside the port and the nearby pedestrian mall, which offers good shopping and restaurants. You enter the old walled city through a decorative arch, which was once the facade of a palace. Inside are a tranquil square, the stark 13th-century fortress-cathedral, the 18th-century bishops palace, and the archaeological museum. Just outside the walls is a marine museum. A few blocks away is the famous Carmo Church, with magnificent and tasteful gold-leaf woodwork, and its attached Bone Chapel, which was featured in my earlier article about Gothic Tales.
