 Faro , the most southern city in Portugal is the capital of Algarve, a beautiful area with on one side the Atlantic ocean and on the other one mountains and as a neighbouring country in the East : Andalusia.
Even if a devastating earthquake destroyed an important part of the ancient city in 1755, Faro nevertheless has kept great remains dating from the Arabic and Roman occupation as well as from the middle-ages, which will delight culture and history lovers. Among these, the monastery Nossa Senhora da Assução, the cathedral, the Sao Francisco church and the Nossa Senhora do Carmo church, incredibly ornamented, which shelters a particular -and rather macabre- chapel where are kept the skeletons of 1,200 monks. North of Faro, next to Estoi, can be found Milreu Roman ruins which contain the remains of former thermae and a heathen temple from the 13th century which became later a place of Christian worship. At last, if you like nature, at a short distance from Faro, there is the natural park Rio Formosa, well known for its unique ecosystem and its reserve sheltering a great variety of migrating birds : a worthing visit.  But Faro is far from being only about the past, ruins and nature ! You will also discover here a modern urban atmosphere with numerous bars, restaurants and nightclubs as well as a very busy nightlife which, be aware of it, does not start before midnight ! Faro with its pleasant beaches and this mediterranean atmosphere which fills the city, is really worth going and you are likely to enjoy studying Portuguese here.
