This is the magnific place of Tavira were i pass my summer holidays for years. Its calm and gorgeous place.

See this link if you want to know more about Tavira en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tavira

Located in the Algarve, Portugal. Most days we would pay a dime for a row boat ride across to Cabanas Beach. On the return trip, if the tide was still high, it would cost a nickel. At low tide, we were able to walk across the inlet. The Algarve is a wonderful get-away-from-it-all place. Delicious food complimented by a friendly casual atmosphere.

Wish you all a great day and a super weekend ahead :))**

Tavira is for many years the city where i spend my summer holidays. I just love it because it maintain many of the old caracteristics.

 

The town has since been rebuilt with many fine 18th Century buildings along with its 37 churches. A 'Roman' (actually Moorish) bridge links the two parts of the town across the River Gilão. The church of Santa Maria do Castelo, built on the site of a Moorish mosque holds the tombs of D Paio Peres Correia and his knights. The church dates from the 13th century and the clock tower has been remodeled from the original Muslim minaret. A bust of Dom Paio Perres Correia who died in 1275 can be seen on the corner of the town hall. Its original economic reliance on the fishing industry has now passed due to changed migration patterns of Tuna and further silting up of the river Gilao. The population is in the region of 25,000 inhabitants supporting a military base whilst the surrounding area is still fairly rural and undeveloped. This is now changing due to the demands of the tourist industry . The beach for this town lies past the salt pans and is reached by a ferryboat that takes the visitor to the sand-bar island known as Ilha de Tavira, part of the Ria Formosa. The island and beaches can also be reached from the nearby footbridge in Santa Luzia.

Un tradicional pueblo portugués, la Bahía de Tavira corresponde a una joya del turismo de aventura que se extiende en la costa del océano Atlántico. En sus 607.000 kilómetros cuadrados, la Bahía de Tavira yace como un importante portuario que atrae a miles de turistas año con año, reconociendo a Tavira como un destino destacado de la región de Algarve.

Un paseo por el puerto de pescadores puede resultar en una experiencia mágica, teniendo a sus pies el imponente Atlántico, mientras que a su alrededor se encuentran importantes edificaciones culturales, naturales e históricas. Paisaje de playas inmaculadas y de importantes centros del pasado luso, le parecerá increíble cómo Tavira reúne tantas maravillas en un pequeño puerto europeo.

Tavira, Algarve portugués.

Tavira is a Portugese town situated at the eastern part of the Algarve coast. To us, Tavira was the most beautiful town we visited during our holiday because it still lacks the massive hotel complexes and represents more of a glimpse into the real Algarve - and because it was sunny ;-)

This is another photo I took in beautiful Tavira, a town at the eastern Algarve. The bridge in the image is the Ponte Romana. The white-washed style of the buildings was established during Moorish occupation between the 8th and 13th centuries which heavily influenced the architecture and culture of the region.
