Arco da Porta Nova

Arco da Porta Nova

Vila-Adentro, the oldest part of Faro’s old town, is enclosed within medieval walls and is accessed via three arches, one of which is called Arco da Porta Nova. It’s a small town gate that connects the city to the waterfront. There’s a pier here, too, where you can catch ferries to the various ilhas.

All our villas are a bit further away. If you’d like to stay close, here are some nearby hotels:
