At the south end of the Jardim Manuel Bivar stands the Arco da Vila, an arched gateway built by the Genoese architect Francisco Xavier Fabri, surmounted by a bell tower and a statue of Faro’s patron saint, St Thomas Aquinus. Through the gateway lies the very attractive historical center of Faro, part of which is still surrounded by a 13th C. wall.
