  • In the eastern part of the Algarve, close to the Spanish border, we find one of the most atmospheric small towns in the region, the town of Tavira, shining with its white-painted walls.
    The settlement on both banks of the Gilão River is often referred to as the “Venice of the Algarve”, where you can find many old churches and mansions. Tavira was already considered one of the most important towns in the Algarve, along with Faro, even during the time of the Moors. The two sides of the charming city are connected by a romantic bridge from the Roman-era.

  • During our visit to the city of Tavira, we will walk across the most romantic bridge in the Algarve, visit the largest and then the most beautiful of Tavira’s 37 churches, admire the fabulous garden blooming between the walls of the old castle, and finally venture into the city’s most popular shopping street. And of course, we will also find out if you like Ginjinha!
