A short walk takes you directly into Tavira town centre where you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquillity. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants, there are many churches (37 in total!) to view, along with the town castle, several monuments and the typical fisherman's harbour leading to the River Formosa Natural Park. There is a wonderful daily market selling fresh home grown produce, and the local beach Island is accessible by small ferry boat and boasts excellent facilities and a wonderful holiday atmosphere. The main town square is brimming with small coffee shops, perfect for socialising at any time of the day. Horse drawn carriages and a small train operate around the town and are perfect for seeing all the sights and experiencing the peaceful, romantic ambience.
