A day in Tavira | Photo journal

The small city of Tavira sits 28km east of Faro on the southern coast of Portugal. The cities historical centre features a medieval castle and bridge, an abundance of moorish influence and a winding river right through its heart. I recently spent the day wandering Tavira’s charming streets and was rewarded with white-washed houses, colourful doors and typical tiles; not forgetting that famous Algarvian blue sky backdrop.

Hopefully these photos will give you a taste of Tavira’s character!
