Tavira celebrates it's 500 years as a city

After being taken from the Moors in the 12th century, Tavira gains great importance due to its strategic location both in terms of defense and in commercial terms. This importance continues for 4 centuries during which the territory and the economy expanded, transforming Tavira into the most prominent population center in the region.

In the 15th century Tavira and other cities in the Algarve exported salt, fish, wine and fruit in exchange for cereals, fabrics, butter, horses and tin.

Tuna fishing was one of the most important activities in this city and lasted until the 20th century. Many marks of this activity can still be found today: the former fishing community Arraial Ferreira Neto (nowadays a hotel), the buildings and train of Praia do Barril, as well as the graveyard of anchors for tuna fishing boats.

 

On March 16, 1520 Tavira was elevated to city by King D. Manuel I.

 

Come and see this beautiful city full of history and natural beauty.
