Those who visit Faro nowadays, don’t usually suspect the secrets hidden (in plain sight) in the stones that the city is made of… Few know the stories that the old abandoned, former industrial buildings/architecture can tell us. Want to be different?
Embark on a mysterious journey that takes you to the underground level of the Old Town, and perhaps, to an unexpected circus class. You will discover why the storks no longer bring babies and meet a charismatic animal from the Ria Formosa. Only by solving the 9 riddles, will you be able to access the best views of the city, and discover a selection of must-see bars and terraces in Faro.
This playful walk across Faro sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Faro or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

We know you’ll love our experiences, but if this is your first, rest assured - you can solve up to three riddles and still get a full refund, or in case of the Wonder Walks - all subscription plans come with one week free trial. See our T&Cs here.
