    Faro's shopping scene is modest yet surprisingly interesting. The relatively small city has a bustling commercial heart as well as a couple of great out-of-town malls. You'll find both unique local boutiques and big international brands in spades.

    As the capital of the Algarve, Faro is certainly the star shopping destination in the area, though that doesn't put it in the same league as Lisbon, Barcelona and other top shopping spots around the Iberian Peninsula. However, you won't lack for options when it comes to finding souvenirs and the choices listed below will provide good distractions if you want a break from the beach.

    Forum Algarve

    Stylish shopping on Faro’s outskirts

    • Shopping

    Forum Algarve is a pretty shopping mall towards the north-western outskirts of Faro. It's built around a very pleasant central square that looks like something a lot more historical than it is – after all, the mall only opened in 2001.

    The square is surrounded by a 2-storey complex containing about 120 stores, 20 restaurants and a cinema. Noteworthy shops include Spanish and Portuguese brands like Parfois, Massimo Dutti and Bershka. You'll also find plenty of international names, especially among the restaurants.

    Rua de Santo António is a beautiful shopping hub located in the heart of Faro's Old Town. The intricately tiled pedestrian street is already worth visiting for beautiful photos, but the shops add an extra reason to explore.

    Star shops to check out along the narrow lane, among a few big-name brands, include Relojoaria Farense for watches, Palloram for fashion, and Artesanato Arco de Sto Antonio for assorted gifts and souvenirs. There are many restaurants and cafés along the historical western end of the street, but it widens out into a modern road further east.
