About your host

I am petite but have a lot of storage :) For 11 years I wrote/edited on worldwide Travel/Architecture/lifestyle for international media of record. Was born/lived only ever in Lisbon - but have family/had holidays in the Algarve from birth. Quit the press in 2011, Communication in 2018. Interior design on own account of 21 years took over. Faro has been a return point for Interiors projects…

What we’ll do

Discover Faro's charming mid-century character. Faro has terrible press. Portuguese nationals deem it visually ugly - transient tourists agree - locals are the first to put it down generally. Indeed, at first/second/third glance there doesn't seem to be much to love - yawn historic core aside. Freedom brought by April 25 1974's Carnation Revolution that ousted Salazar's roughly half-century…

What else you should know

This is an easygoing lifestyle stroll. Refreshing blueprint of the city - beyond locals' awareness. Ongoing group chat. Architecture&venues in context. In private groups I'll speak Portuguese. Or English with French/Spanish speakers who understand it: I do both :)

What to bring

Open querying mind.
Keen duly-clad eyes.
Comfortable walking shoes.
Water - we'll be mostly away from supermarkets et al.
Comfortable bladder - restroom opportunities will be few.
What fits the bill of being outside - Faro sun is unforgiving, and it can get windy-going-on-cold 'out of the blue'.

Where you'll be

We will meet by the door of the monumental Caixa Geral de Depósitos building - at the wide start of the central pedestrian street that crosses downtown Faro. Stroll uptown via Faro's 'avenue' - 5 de Outubro - and its wider outskirts. Then back down on backstreets - to wrap up back at the waterfront. Stop for architecture - and for air. Look at a couple of retail venues of interest we can enter on weekdays.
