The architecture reflects deep-rooted Moorish influences with charming public squares and an old historic part. Along the river sides you can see a lot of old and renovated houses, shops, and many restaurants. A walk through the ‘old town’ is highly recommended and a joy to visit: The historic buildings, famed churches, plazas and quaint, narrow cobbled streets are reminiscent of Tuscany - just not so busy! In the evenings Tavira offers alfresco dining along the river banks on both sides and in the old town.
The town is also well known for the most white, sandy and clean beaches on the Ilha de Tavira, its islands and sandbanks which are easy to access by ferry, small boat, train or long delightful walks. These beaches and islands are protected within the Ria Formosa Natural Park. From Tavira you can take boat trips to other islands as well as towards the River Guardiana which is nature’s border between Portugal and Spain.
Togofor-Homes Tavira team is available to show you properties in and around this beautiful town.
