The beautiful village of Tavira, known as the ‘town of churches’, is one of the most attractive and architecturally rich places in the whole of the Algarve region of Portugal. Despite some of its ancient buildings having been destroyed by earthquakes over the years, many still remain to testify to the regions rich cultural heritage. Indeed, because of its fantastic position, mild climate and fruitful oceans Tavira was occupied by various civilizations in the past, notably the Romans and the Moors. Visitors interested in archaeology and history can visit the Roman ruins which are being excavated in the area, or stroll through the two halves of the town itself, joined by a Roman bridge, and take in the attractive 18th century architecture and no fewer than 37 churches….some of which date as far back as the 16th century. The nearest beaches can be reached by a short boat trip to the Ilha de Tavira, an idyllic island which lies past the salt flats and whose long sandy stretches, peace and quiet will prove to be the perfect antidote to all the hard work and toil of the past year. With Faro Airport only 30 minutes or 40 kilometres away by airport shuttle or airport taxi, this is the ideal choice for a short or long stay!
