About the neighbourhood
Tavira is a beautiful town with some stunning 18th Century architecture and many churches. The tourist industry thrives here with new golf courses springing up all around the town in recent years, and it is quickly becoming a good tourist destination.

In the surroundings, a visit to the small village of 'Cacela Velha' is not to be missed. Likewise, the trip to the sand-bar island beaches of Tavira, stretching along 7 miles, is always a must. The area is part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
