“So many fish as ever seen” is part of a legend known in Faro, but it might as well have been written for this gastronomic experience! From Faro's market, where you will see an abundance of sardines, mackerel, tuna, octopus and much more, freshly caught from the sea, to the traditional seafood Açorda, a local seafood delicacy you can't miss out on, the Fisherman Food Tour is certainly a culinary experience fit for fish and sea food lovers! Explore Faro off the beaten tracks with those who know it as well as the palm of their hands. Discover the restaurants and taverns where locals usually go to eat and experience the best Algarvian dishes. It's not all about food, we will also show you the highlights of Faro's architecture and tell you their history. Come and experience a tour filled with food and good memories!
