Beware of the locals - Don't drop in on the locals. Some crazy ass dudes in there. Seen so much violence. Slashed tires and broken windows are common. Not worth it.

Not on the map - Faro is located at central south algave coast, and is "not on the map" in the Sines area. This spot should be placed in the algave section.
