Faro airport transfers to Tavira
The charming town of Tavira is located on the eastern Algarve, 40 km from the Faro airport and 25 km from the Spanish border.

The most popular beaches are Praia do Barril, Praia da Ilha de Tavira, Praia da Terra Estreita and Praia de Cabanas de Tavira. Withn the Ria Formosa are abundant salt pans, still active in the traditional way of extracting salt from the sea water.
Tavira's historical presence in this region is visible with the well preserved monuments of Castelo de Tavira, the Igreja de Santa Maria do Castelo, the Ruinas do Forte de Santo Antonio de Tavira and the Igreja da Misericordia. The town holds a strong Moorish influence, with cobbled streets and traditional tiled houses. The Roman bridge of Tavira which crosses over the Gilão river is an attractive site to visit along with the Jardim do Coreto where you will find the Mercado da Ribeira. To learn more of the history of Tavira the Museu Municipal de Tavira and the Casa de Fotografia Andrade is a good option.
