Tavira

Tavira has succeeded at escaping the flood of tourism that has affected other coastal Portuguese towns over the years. Situated along the Rio Gilao, the town contains castle ruins, a Roman bridge, Gothic churches, and Renaissance cathedrals, among other alluring historical sites. Tour the town on foot to get a feel for its charming streets, gardens, squares, and cafes. Tavira also serves as a great base to explore the eastern region of the Algarve, including the area's beaches. Tavira is in Faro District. Make Tavira central to your Portugal travel plans using our Portugal holiday builder tool .

Where to stay in Tavira

Tavira boasts a selection of affordable accommodations. Check yourself into a family-run bed and breakfast or small-time hotel as an affordable option with a quiet atmosphere among the city's array of whitewashed homes. Stay in a guesthouse or private apartment tucked into the residential neighborhoods along the banks of the Gilao River for a great view over the waterway and across to the other side's historical waterfront buildings. Alternatively, you can opt to pay a little more to stay in one of the more upscale hotels located in the residential neighborhoods north of the freeway; these require transportation into town but feature pools, restaurants, and plenty of amenities.
