Hotels in Tavira

    Tavira Details

    Tavira is a town on the banks of the Gilao River in Portugal’s Algarve province. Because of a devastating earthquake in 1755, not many buildings are more than 250 years old. Still, the community has retained a lot of its old world charm. This is a great place to spend a vacation, or even just a weekend. Tavira has more than two dozen old churches. The most interesting is the 16th century Igreja da Misericordia. Another must-see is the Igreja Santa Maria do Castelo, which has the tombs of seven 13th century knights who were slain by the Moors during a truce. Guests staying in Tavira hotels can stroll through the beautiful Praca da Republica, and across the Ponte, a 17th century bridge built on Roman foundations. They can also visit the ruins of Castro dos Mouros, a castle of Medieval, Moorish and Roman construction.Hotels in Tavira and surrounding communities cater to all travel budgets, from the expensive to the bargain rate.
