Prayer Facilities

Finding prayer facilities at the Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve will not be possible. Muslim tourists will therefore have to make use of the facilities offered at the only known mosque in the city, the Mesquita de Faro which is located in Bom João. Muslim tourists can therefore ask staff at the Science Center to direct them to this mosque when needed.  

Halal Food

It is unclear if the Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve has a food outlet. Visitors will however be able to find cafés and restaurants in the area surrounding the attraction. While Muslim visitors will find it quite difficult to locate Halal restaurants in Faro, there are a couple of Halal dining establishments in the city. Two known Halal restaurants in Faro are, Garrett Snack Bar and Horus Snack Bar. Muslims visitors will also be able to get more information regarding the availability of Halal food while at the local mosque.
