Tavira The Essential
Recommended
This charming town, with its white houses and numerous churches is situated above the estuary of the river Gilão, at the bottom of a hill surrounded by the remains of the high walls constructed by King Dinis. The Roman bridge and the high Moorish walls reflect the town's antiquity. The place makes for pleasant walks along the narrow lanes, and the riverbanks embellished with gardens, and the lively market. Its beach is located on the offshore bar.
