Tavira is a quiet and cute town. We first explored the castelo de Tavira (free) on our own. The castle has good viewpoints of the town. The town used to be the commercial center/main port for Algarve region in the 16th century. We decided to hop on a tourist tram outside the castle and went around the town for about 45 mins. The only stop one could get off that tram to take some pictures is the main bridge in the town center.
