Faro’s history as a city is long and detailed. There’s been Romans, Northern Europeans, Northern Africans, the Portuguese, the Spanish, the Portuguese again, the French, the British and the Portuguese again… For a city that’s seen it all, you’d be surprised to find out that most of Faro’s actual built landscape was designed during the 1950s. Two thirds of the city’s still-standing image was impacted by modernism in one way or another, which means that a lot more equipment was designed from the 1930s to 1970s alone than in the city’s entire history. This is in no way implying that Faro’s centurial history is less important but it allows us to think of Faro as a modernist town, almost entirely built from scratch as a result of a modernist project and intent.
Modernism as a trend usually translates into sophisticated, technological equipments or high-end consumer goods and while that is sometimes true, modernism in Portugal has taken an approach that goes hand-in-hand with traditional practices and authentic, locally-sourced designs. Modernism, hence, was not trying to clash with the “old and dated” city but to blend in and accommodate it, so while I’m showing you the city’s lesser-known hidden gems, we are not losing any bits of history and culture you’d expect from modern architecture. In fact, we’re jumping right in.

Born and raised in the city; have lived here for the longest part of my life. The food is great, the weather is priceless but growing up I only cared about finding the best way to go around it. I believe this is what got me into majoring in Art & Architecture History and why I might be just the right person for this walk, aside from my sense of humour. But that's just my guess. Why not make yours?

This walk was designed as southern-paced walkthrough of the city’s later developments with a focus on its modern and contemporary designs, taking you from its first breath of “progress” to the final moment of its pulse. An off-the-beaten-track way to explore the city in its most authentic and rawer aspects and also the elements of its lifestyle and culture that would be considered worth experiencing today.

Ell was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide to his home town. His personal insight and knowledge about the architecture and history of Faro, together with his academic credentials, made this walk fascinating. Ell was such a fun guy and answered all our questions. We had such a good time - we can’t recommend Ell highly enough. Mary and Jerry, England.

Ell's Modernism tour of Faro offers many insights into Portugal's recent history. It helped frame the sights of the city and gave me perspective on what I would have otherwise missed. Well worth the experience. Ell is a most thoughtful and good natured guide.

The tour is what it says on the can, 'authentic'. I would say that if you are interested in the social and political history of Portugal and how it has influenced the country's architecture the tour is a must. We enjoyed it enormously and Ell was an excellent host. Thank you Ell.

We really enjoyed the tour with Éll. He showed us around Faro with a lot of knowledge regarding the architectural history of the town but also facts around Portuguese life and culture. The walking is totally doable and he even brought some sweets for us. :) Thank you very much for the great tour and introduction to Faro!
