A charming town set on both sides of the Gilao River, home to an ancient castle and a collection of Gothic and Renaissance churches.

The city has been rebuilt with many fine 18th-century buildings along with its 37 churches. A 'Roman' bridge links the two parts of the town across the River Gilao. The church of Santa Maria do Castelo holds the tombs of Dom Paio Peres Correia and his knights. The church dates from 13C and the clock tower has been remodeled from the original Muslim minaret. A bust of Dom Paio Perres Correia can be seen on the corner of the town hall. The beach for this town lies past the salt pans and is reached by a ferryboat that takes the visitor to the sand-bar island known as Ilha de Tavira. The island and beaches can also be reached from the nearby footbridge in Santa Luzia.
