Igreja de San Francisco is located near the medieval walls of Tavira city. This church was one of the most pre-eminent buildings of the medieval Algarve. The monastery established by the Franciscans between 1250 and 1330. This monastery was troubled by a series of disasters, including the earthquakes (1722 and 1755), a downfall (1840) and an outrageous fire (1881).

At present still preserves interesting medieval ruins, only two of its side chapels remains. The church is free to enter. The roof including those paintings from 1700 are amazing. The garden of the church is a little heaven in the middle of the city. Beautiful uncommon flowering plants and some old trees has made this place mesmerizing. There is a free washroom inside the garden. You should try to visit the place if you go to the Tavira town.

We could see the dome of this church from the Castelo de Tavira so tok the opportunity to visit on our way to the train station. The church itself was closed but we could visit the adjacent garden. Even in February the flowers were lovely.
