Photographer's Note

As with most cities in Portugal, driving in Faro should be undertaken with a healthy dose of caution. Better to be safe than sorry, after all.

In particular, keep an eye out for unlit, animal-drawn carts making sudden incursions into the main road from blind side streets. Also, be aware that Portuguese pedestrians tend to take a rather blasé attitude toward motor traffic. They may step out in front of your car unexpectedly, so be sure to drive as defensively as possible in areas with heavy foot traffic.

Another traffic situation worthy of caution is the tendency of Faro drivers to park in the middle of a lane of traffic, perhaps due to the lack of shoulders on many roads there. A couple of taps on the horn should bring the driver around to remedy the situation.
