    The city is beautiful, cottages, tile, River and bridges... but monuments has few. Call castle that is offensive. I've seen larger beach castles, the garden is beautiful, although in certain months (I was in August) nor is it is very flowery. The only castle is a wall with a ladder from which you can see the rest of the city. It's free, and how there is much to do, because you have to go see it.

    Climb up the walls and battlements and get a nice view of the town, however there isn't much else to do in the actual castle... good to pop round when walking round town  more »

  • Lovely little castle above beautiful Tavira old city centre. A great short stop that made the trip more interesting.
  • Great tourist stop old renovated portion of the castle. A garden inside. Many views from the top of the walls. Five venues in the immediate area for food, drink and sight seeing. Do visit here!
  • Great views and nice place to enjoy the sight of the whole of Tavira. Worth the climb up the stairs.
  • Fantastic views over Tavira free entry
  • Nice garden and views although the castle is just some walls and some dangerous stairs without stair railing

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.
