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?
Light is a city's most powerful resource — and, arguably, every city has its own. Faro's light happens to be very bright during the day and just perfect around sunset. Light has been there before buildings and will be there after them, so it is natural that buildings adapt to it. Light is, for this reason, one of the most thought-out features in architecture, whether you prefer form over function…
I will bring a little homemade traditional snack to power us up during our walk! ;)

Our walk starts at the most historical place in town and jumps right into its most authentic neighbourhoods to offer a full grasp of the city's growth and the impact of light on its general image. We will go about the most impressive buildings in town before finishing the walk at the best spot to catch the sunset at — the dock!
