Cultural Treats in Faro: Top Museums & Art Galleries to Visit

Travel & Tourism
Faro is a wonderful city located in the Algarve in Portugal, and it is the normal arrival point for holidaymakers flying into the region from abroad in search of fun, sun and sand. You may be planning to arrive here before travelling to a coastal resort such as Albufeira. If so, before you get your transfer from Faro Airport to Albufeira, discover some more of the cultural side of the city. There are a number of excellent museums and art galleries to visit, so make the time to visit one, or all, of the following.

1. The Municipal Museum of Archaeology

This is one of the main museums you should try to visit before you hop on the transfer from Faro Airport to Albufeira. Known locally as the Museu Municipal de Faro, you will not find it hard to locate – there is a large statue of King Afonso presiding outside (he was the king of Portugal in the 13th century). The museum is on Praca Afonso III, and is housed inside a convent dating back to the 16th century, called the Convento da Nossa Senhora da Assuncao. This is a stunning building, and one of the best-preserved convents in the country.

One of the highlights that you will find inside this museum is the Roman mosaic depicting Neptune, which dates back to the 3rd century. You will also see various ancient Roman statues - most of which were discovered at Estoi - as well as some tombstones. All in all, it is a fascinating attraction for anyone interested in archaeology and will provide you with a unique insight into the history of the region.

2. Maritime Museum

Known locally as the Museu Maritimo, this museum provides information about the local fishing industry in the city. Portugal was a great seafaring nation and fishing has long been an important (in fact, vital) industry here. Located on Capitania de Porto de Faro at the harbour, you will be able to see the model boats on display as well as interesting items that have been discovered in the area.

3. Arco Art Gallery

This art gallery is one of the finest, and it is located right on the city walls. Go along to enjoy the art collection, which focuses mainly on Portuguese contemporary art, but also enjoy the beautiful views over the Ria Formosa while you are there. As well as the permanent collection, the gallery puts on temporary exhibits throughout the year.

4. The Regional Museum of the Algarve

The Museu Regional Do Algarve is one of the best museums in the city, so do try to find some time to visit before you catch your transfer from Faro Airport to Albufeira. It is located on Praça de Liberdade, and is dedicated to handcrafts of the immediate region and around the Algarve. You'll find examples of traditional weavings, lacework and more, and get an insight into the crafts of the region.

See the Best of Faro

The museums and galleries above will provide you with a unique insight into life in the Algarve and the history of Faro and the surrounding region. If you're planning on travelling from Faro Airport to Albufeira to enjoy a beach holiday, it's well worth finding some time before your transfer to visit one or more of the above.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct. If you’re looking for a transfer from Faro Airport to Albufeira, Shuttle Direct provide pre-booked shuttles to major destinations all over Europe. Wherever you travel, Shuttle Direct can make sure that you don’t miss your car on your holiday abroad.
