Local Area Details"Faro, the provincial capital and the administrative centre for the whole of the Algarve region, stands on a fertile plain rich with orange and olive groves, fruit trees, figs, almonds and maize fields. The city has both Arab and Roman ruins but most of the present attractive older buildings were constructed after the disastrous earthquake of 1755 and the earlier one of 1532. The town's capture on 12 March, 1249, by the forces of Dom Afonso III, marked the end of Moorish rule in the Algarve, the last Muslim province in Portugal.
The Romans made it an important centre and called it OssÃ³noba. Under the Moors it was a large port and a vital link to Portugal's interior. Today the town serves as a gateway to the south for millions of holidaymakers, mainly Europeans, who flock to the Algarve for a few days of fun in the sun."
"What to see?
At the heart of the old part of the city, surrounded still by the Roman walls, the Largo da SÃ© is a peaceful and spacious open square (that was once the site of the Roman Forum) lined with orange trees and flanked by a 13th Century Cathedral that faces a 18th Century Episcopal palace (the Bishops' palace), which is still in use. An interesting building is the neighbouring 16th Century Convent that is now turned into the home of the city's archaeological museum (within it is a section devoted to the Arab occupation). Just outside the city's ancient walls through a Moorish archway, the 18th Century Church of S. Francisco is impressively decorated with tiled scenes of the life of St. Francis. Further north is the 17th Century Chapel of PÃ© da Cruz with interesting oil panels of stories from Genesis, such as the creation of the sun and stars. The city's Maritime Museum housed in the harbour master's building on the waterfront, has an extensive collection of oceanographic instruments, scale model ships and galleons showing the maritime history of the coast.
Much of the city is now composed of apartments and there are many attractive shops and a particularly artistic theatre. Faro is also the home of the Ria Formosa lagoon, a nature reserve of over 15.000 hectares and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods. The beach is almost 7 kms distant from the city and is a long sandy spit reached by crossing a bridge not far from the International Airport. The municipal council has an active cultural department organizing different and various events during the year."
About Weather/Climate/Temperature"The climate in the Algarve region of Portugal is mild, with little rainfall and plenty of sun throughout the year, making it an ideal year-round destination. Summers are hot and sunny, but are often refreshed by cooling breezes off the coast; the farther west you go, the windier it becomes. July and August are the hottest months of the year, and can be fairly unbearable inland. The weather in the autumn and winter months is mild, and visitors will need warm clothing in the evening. January is the coolest month of the year. The Algarve gets most of its rainfall over the winter months; rain is rare between June and September. The Atlantic Ocean is cold but becomes gradually slightly warmer to the east, thanks to the influence of the Mediterranean. Average Temperatures: Jan (15ÂºC/59ÂºF), Feb (16ÂºC/61ÂºF), Mar (17ÂºC/63ÂºF), Apr (20ÂºC/68ÂºF), May (22ÂºC/72ÂºF), Jun (25ÂºC/77ÂºF), Jul (28ÂºC/82ÂºF) Aug (28ÂºC/82ÂºF), Sep (26ÂºC/79ÂºF), Oct (22ÂºC/72ÂºF), Nov (19ÂºC/66ÂºF), Dec (16ÂºC/61ÂºF)"
