The remains of Tavira Castle are surrounded by a nice garden. From its walls and octogonal tower you’ll get wonderful views over the city.

This defensive position dates back to the 10th-11th centuries and was built over the remains of a Phoenician fortress (8th-7th century B.C.) The castle has been refurbished both in Modern and Contemporary times.

You must be careful when going up and down, as the walls don’t have stairs or handrail.

Next to here, within the walls, is the Igreja de Santa Maria do Castelo Church, and a little further to the south the Igreja de Santiago Church.
