Faro Cathedral reviews
€5 entry fee. Not as ornate inside as the Catholic Church but there was lots to see, with good explanations to read. Amazing how old everything was! A small museum up the first set of stairs was...

We stayed in Faro for a short break and took a tour of the old town. This cathedral was in our path and was well worth a visit.

it's quite old building historically and unique, beautiful from outside/inside. The Tickets is quite fair/cheap, and you can explore inside and outside of it (you can climb on the cathedral tower as well to be able to see the best view from up top. And to take Great/memorable pictures of it plus there is some nice and old cathedral bells. from up top of the tower you can see in almost 360 viewing huge amount of the "Faro City" and all around the cathedral. Definitely worth to explore and check it.
Quite nice to visit. You have access to the cathedral, the upper level with a museum where you can see the cathedral from above, then a garden with a sun clock and 2 small chapels (including one with bones but not very well preserved) and the rooftop. The view from the rooftop are very nice, and you can see the bells.
