The Moorish occupation of Tavira between the 8th and 13th centuries left its mark on the agriculture, architecture and culture of the area. That influence can still be seen in Tavira today with its whitewashed buildings, Moorish style doors and rooftops.
The city has since 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 Gilão.
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, part of the Ria Formosa.
