Faro Cathedral Reviews
è stata una piacevole sorpresa poter ammirare un luogo di culto cosi piccolo ma maestoso per le sue opere. ben conservate vale la pena passare un po tempo al suo interno. lo consiglio more »it was a pleasant surprise to be able to admire a place of worship so small but majestic for his works. well-preserved it is worth spending some time inside it. I recommend it
pour quelques euros ça vaut le détour! le caissier très sympa parle très bien français et nous conseille bien! un peu de fraicheur ne fait pas de mal le patio est charmant la cathédrale très originale... more »for a few euros it's worth the detour! the very nice cashier speaks very good French and advises us well! a little freshness does not hurt the patio is charming the very original cathedral with Renaissance and Baroque Gothic blends and azulejos! Very pretty! superb organ and especially the nail after some steep steps!! the splendid view of the bay and the roofs. really to do!
We were lucky to listen to some live music played at the cathedral and overall it has some interesting relics on the display. There is a good view from the cathedral tower over Faro. Overall great experience.
Interesting cathedral build up with bones of humans. There could be written down some informations for tourists that the history of this place gets clearer. And also it costs entrance fee
