The Algarve region
The Algarve is the most southern region of mainland Portugal. It is Europe's sunniest place with Europe's finest and longest beaches. It is a country full of history and tradition. it is a very popular destination for tourists because of its beaches, Mediterranean climate, safety and low costs. Its temperature ranges from 15 degrees C in winter to over 30 in summer.
The economy of the Algarve has traditionally been associated with fishing. There is also wine in abundance. The Algarve has invested heavily in tourism and in promoting its natural beauty, scenery, and beaches etc. It is also very involved in the Golf industry and has created a substantial network of beautifull golf courses. There is a world class golf course in Cabannas just 5 kms from Tavira.
There is a single track railway line which runs from Lagos to Vila Real do Santo Antonio that also links to the line running from Faro to Lisbon. The Algarve is also well serviced by the A22 a new major motorway, which actually links the visitor to the whole of mainland Europe. The old ''ÉN 125'' road is still operational and will connect to all the old and historic villages.
Tavira has a quiet friendly ambience and makes any tourist feel welcome. It is the oldest and most picturesque towns in the Algarve, built on either side the river Galao. This river is crossed by two low bridges one of which has its origions from Roman times. Its main industry is fishing but this is supplemented by many tourists arriving each year. Many restaurants and shops are lined along the river with tiny bars and daily fresh fruit markets. A short ferry trip from the town centre will carry the tourist to the Ilha de Tavira and its superb island beaches. These local ferries run on a timetable and very little cost.
The Castle battlements are easily reached, from which there is a beautiful view over 18th century pyramid shaped rooftops. This feature is very distinct to the eastern Algarve. The working salt pans and the derelect tuna canning factories are visible to the eye. In the middle ages these were accessed by cargo ships transporting salt and dried fish to north-west Europe and Africa .
There is a large catholic population in Tavira with many old churches dating from the renaissance period. The town is transformed at night with its illuminated white buildings and many free festivals in the town square hosting live music venues. The availabilitty of golf nearby holds a big attraction for visitors also. The nearest Golf course is only 3 kms away called 'Benamor' in Cabanas. In this area you can also find 'Quinta da Ria' 10kms, 'Quinta de Cima' also 10kms. There are also Jack Nicklaus and Seve Ballesteros designed courses within a 20 km area towards the Spanish border at Monte Rei and Quinta do Vale respectively..
