Tavira is a unique experience, mainly because of its Historical background and untouched archaeology parts,
has managed to keep it one of the most characteristic cities representing the Algarve region.
It has a mix of Phoenician, Roman, Arab and Christian historical heritage,
which results in a center with remains of castle walls, churches and bridges from different eras.
Add this with fantastic river crossing the city and beaches on islands around Ria Formosa
natural park. You have a unique scenario likely to dazzle many of its visitors.
Today, in what was the walled part of the city, remain winding narrow streets,
not very different from the heart of most Algarve cities. Walking and
sightseeing through them is very nice, Tavira is ideal for wandering;
the warren of cobblestone streets hides pretty, historic gardens
and shady plazas. There’s a small, active fishing port and
a modern market. Its enticing assortment of restaurants
and guesthouses makes it an excellent base for
exploring the Algarve’s eastern section.
