What to expect

Do you like curious city trivia? On this short self-guided walk in Faro, you’ll discover which geological feature protected the city from the 1755 earthquake, learn about a surprising annual parade, and spot sculptures (partially) submerged in the sea. Along the way, solve fun location-based riddles to unlock new directions, recommendations and more local stories! This experience was created by Secret City Trails co-founders, Kristina & Wendy.

This playful walk across Faro sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Faro or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on the discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

Local wonders you’ll discover on this walk include:

  • The famous Igreja do Carmo known for its chapel made of the bones and skulls of monks

  • The magnificent cobbled streets

  • Mysterious statues (sometimes underwater!)

  • A hidden city entrance (through the old wall)

  • A lovely rooftop bar with the best cocktails

This discovery walk is an educational and fun activity for friends, couples, families with kids, curious locals, visitors, and team building. You can fully enjoy this experience of connecting with the city while staying in your own group.
