A city and municipality in southern Portugal, Faro is the capital of the Algarve region and has a resident population of around 42,000. Its position on the lagoon of the Rio Formosa attracted settlers in prehistoric times, though it was not until the arrival of the Romans that a civilised community arose, at that time called Ossonoba.
An important trading town for the Romans, it fell into the hands of the Visigoths after the collapse of the Roman Empire, and later came under control of the Moors during the 8th century when it became a fortified town. These fortifications and the muslim inhabitants were defeated by the Portuguese King Alfonso III and the town came back to Christian control.
Present day Faro is the location of the main airport for the Algarve and the arrival point of most of the regions visitors.
