Tavira Holidays

Tavira Holidays – The Algarve’s architectural gem

A holiday in Tavira is for couples, families, and those for whom discovery forms part of their holiday itinerary. Rated along with Lagos as one of the two most architecturally interesting historic towns in the Algarve, Tavira has retained much of its traditional beauty without sacrificing its heritage in search of the tourist euro. Because of this it is the perfect holiday destination for those who love castles, churches, meandering streets and white-washed houses, as well as leisurely evening strolls and excellent restaurants on the river front of the Gilão River, a picturesque setting to enjoy a drink at one of the cafes.

There is also a chance to try island life, at least for a day, because Tavira’s main beach is on the Ilha de Tavira, an eleven kilometre-long sandy island. And you mustn’t miss a trip to one of the treasures of the Algarve - Cacela Velha little more than a handful of white houses, a church and castle, but an image to recall the more tranquil and historic side of the Algarve.
