Downtown Tavira, side by side with Gilão river and the sea
Well…since you are on our website chances are you already know the city…. Anyway, Tavira side by side with Gilão river and the sea is a delightful Portuguese town, that is situated close to a coastline of beautiful beaches. Tavira and the eastern Algarve makes for a calm and relaxed holiday destination, but the region still offers a wide variety of enjoyable activities and exciting day trips. Tavira has a charming historic centre, which is a joy to explore and discover the rich history of the town.
Mercado Municipal de Tavira
Every morning a lively market is held in the Mercado Municipal, with stalls selling fish, fresh produce and local handicraft. Make sure you pay them a visit! This is a great location to experience typical Portuguese daily life, and also to find a bargain gift or simply to fill your fridge with fresh products.
Our beloved Roman Bridge
Also make sure you take a picture from the Roman bridge! This ancient bridge is a key iconic landmark joining the old city with the early suburbs and a must during hot summer evenings. Often there are street performers. Very romantic at sundown. Good for people-watching. There is a myth about the bridge and why on one side the river has one name and on the other a different name. Find out why by asking around.
Choosing a new home, downtown can be the perfect spot for the ones that rather walk! You can shop for almost everything in the city centre, except for some things you can only buy at the bigger supermarkets. It is also the perfect choice for the ones who love being near cultural and community attractions.
Summer can be pretty intense of tourists and things to do. Should be your choice if you enjoy living in an area where neighbour interactions come regularly and naturally with a wide array of people, making us feel we are part of a small community. Cons: most townhouses do not have a private yard or a garden. So you better learn how to make the best from your balcony…
