Faro city walls
The Faro Walls are a series of fortifications and walls that surround the city of Faro, located in southern Portugal.
The construction of the walls began during the Roman period and was later expanded and renovated during the Moorish and Christian rule.
The walls were built as a way to protect the city from invaders and pirates who threatened the region. The walls have a total length of about 2.5 km and feature several towers and gates, such as the Arco da Vila and Arco do Repouso.
Today, the Faro Walls are one of the main tourist attractions of the city and offer incredible views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean. The area of the walls is also a great option for walking tours and to enjoy the historic atmosphere of the city.
