    A vacation from our vacation after one month in Portugal
    Loved the laid back old town. Tavira Island and beach was the highlight. Swam in the ocean, walked the beach. Went for coffee shopped and relaxed in the parks along the river.

    great Views from the Castle Walls
    This site has little left of what will have been a formidable castle. Some of the walls are still standing, and it is possible to climb up to the top and enjoy the view of the town of Tavira. The large courtyard contains some exotic trees and flowers, and there was a WC on the site, but no café. Entrance was free so it was well worth a visit.

    Well worth a visit
    A lovely place to visit. It's free to enter, the little garden is beautiful with a range of flowering plants, all labelled for those interested. Only part of the castle walls remain but there are access steps (steep) to various parts with fantastic views over the city. Well worth a visit.

    Nice place to spend half an hour
    Nice place to visit on a trip to Tavira. Free to enter and a good way to spend half an hour. Lots of good look outs across Tavira. Pretty gardens too.

    Beautiful Castle Remains
    Beautiful small castle remains in Tavira, just a short walk away from the Old Bridge. Offers some fantastic rooftop views of the city. Inner aspect planted with some lovely plants, flowers and trees. A must visit when in Tavira.

The castle is well signposted in Tavira, and has some lovely 360 degree views of Tivira. Well worth a visit, if your in the area.

The castle is definitely worth a visit when in Tavira. Some good views from the ramparts. Don't forget to wander into the enclosed garden - beautiful trees and plants from all over Portugal.

The view from the walls is stunning.

The gardens are beautiful.

The castle is 800 years old.

Public restroom.

The plants smell wonderful.

The old castle is right next to the main cathedral in town.

Small ruin with beautiful garden protected by the walls. The scent of the flowers as you walk in was amazing. The climb up the stairs definitely worth the views.
