Tavira is in Algarve, on the southen portuguese coast, not far from the Spanish boarder... A small traditionnal town by the sea, straight out of history. Low houses covered by pagoda shape roofs, whitewashed or ocher coloured walls, fishermens' huts built along side the "Rio Gilao" that crosses the town. And, following the last meanders, colourfull fishing boats leave in their wake the ultimate areas of salt marshes and the large stretches of sand to finally meet the ocean. So Tavira is still a fishing port, and a charming one too. But Tavira is not a lifeless town. It has been modernized with talent, even though sometimes nostalgic inhabitants like to think of the all times when things were different. However tourism has got to Tavira and in a nice way too, a little changed but well protected from the crowds of the West Algarve. Tavira is what you are looking for!
