The old entrance to the historic city of Faro. Amazing little restaurant to grab a drink away from the busy city centre. Nice easy walk through the old town

The Arc of Repouso was one of the entrances to the historic city of Faro. It is several hundred years old but has been lovingly restored. Nice architecture

The historic part of Faro isn't that big, so a small walk and you can have a look here. We have seen it and that about says it all.

This small gate to the old city appears to have been restored as it is in very good condition. Makes for a good photo opportunity.

Built by the Muslims during the 12th/13th centuries to prevent the Christian invasion it is called the Resting Arch, some nice views from outside of the walls.

Arc of Repouso is an attractive gateway into the old town. There was a gate here originally built by the Moors and traces of their work still remain but mostly from the 18th century. Nice cobbled street too.
