Every year, by the end of the summer, I enjoy looking back at all the walks I had the chance to do and I have realized this has become my #1 walk in Faro. So, instead of enjoying the fruits of my hard work, I am tweaking it one more time and applying the useful critiques I have been given to make it spot-on.

This is a very personal approach to the city I was born and raised in, combining both emotional aspects (as you’d expect from any local) and my years of academic research (as you’d expect from an art history geek). Nothing, hence, was randomly selected:
1) the sunset is the perfect marriage between temperature and atmosphere, which makes it the absolute best time to walk around;
2) the buildings were carefully picked out to offer the most insightful image of the city, one that does not focus on the regular, exhausted and touristic landmarks but rather encompasses a wide variety of authentic architectural equipment you would otherwise not get to look at.

This walk is a very exclusive opportunity of getting to know and understanding the way Faro’s architecture has responded to this constant climate with a strategy that is both consistent and creative, allowing us to go through every bit of the city’s history with a renovated perspective focusing entirely on the relationship between the city and its characteristic light rather than the usual chronological list of events.

Born and raised in the city; have lived here for the longest part of my life. The food is great, the weather is priceless but growing up I only cared about finding the best way to go around it. I believe this is what got me into majoring in Art & Architecture History and why I might be just the right person for this walk, aside from my sense of humour. But that's just my guess. Why not make yours?

Faro’s uniqueness is all over the city, just not at eyesight; the details are really where it’s at. Getting to know the city’s most authentic and vivid image really depends on what you look for in the places you visit, that is why every single building presented during this walk has been carefully selected not to fit the “landmark” status right away, but the emotional identity of the area with flaws and all.

Ell’s sunset tour was one of the best vacation experiences I’ve had - period. He is not only knowledgeable about the cities history and culture but he’s passionate about sharing all that is unique about Faro. He is easy to understand a speaks English perfectly. You should expect to learn about how the city and people have evolved over the past decades and that means you’ll hear everything from politics, architecture, religion, food, and more. Ell has so much local knowledge to share that if you engage you could easily spend more than 2 hours learning what makes this part of the world special. Highly recommend.

Éll is friendly and clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about architecture and particularly that of Faro and southern Portugal. I enjoyed the experience, and as an extra plus, he provided lots of great recommendations for the rest of my stay in the entire region of Algarve. Just note that if you're not into architecture, this tour is not really for you.

A great intro to Faro - Éll is great! He’s also really knowledgable and shared a long list of places to check out and eat at, something we definitely appreciated. On reflection, the walk could have been shorter but we learnt a lot and enjoyed Éll’s stories. Highly recommend.

¡Éll es un anfitrión y guia ideal! Su propuesta de rutas y temas más inusuales es sin duda mucho más interesante que el típico tour precocinado. Va presentando y encajando los temas de forma muy natural, incluyendo muchas anécdotas divertidas, y a parte de muy didáctico resulta muy entretenido. Su español es muy bueno, es majísimo, y el tiempo nos pasó volando! Totalmente recomendable :)

Ell took the time and show me around. I really enjoyed the walk and all the different sights. I learned a lot about portuguese architecture and history. Can only recommend!

As I was the only attendee, I had a lovely private walking tour of Faro with Ell. He took me through the history of the city through architecture and it was really interesting to see how Faro has evolved over the years. Ell was really friendly and personable, and he even made sure that we ended on time and recommended a few restaurants so that I could have dinner before the curfew. Highly recommended if you want a local’s tour of Faro.
