Tavira is a city in the Algarve region of Portugal. Crossed by the Gilão River, it is one of the most monumental cities in Portugal, with its 37 churches.

During the 17th century it was considered one of the main cities in the Algarve, although signs of decay were beginning to appear. The activity of its port reduced and the city lost importance as a strategic and economic point. Today the city is thriving thanks to the economic boost that the tourism sector has received since the 1960s across the Algarve.

Tavira is a small city and perfectly walkable. It's possible to catch a small tour train which goes around the city most interesting landmarks. There are also electric tuk-tuks available which can be a quiet and comfortable way to visit the natural park area.
