A guided walk with Peter Kingdon Booker

Meet at the Roman Bridge at 11 am

Peter has devised three areas for Historical Walks in Tavira. The first covers the walled town on the hill, and includes the Roman Bridge, the Câmara building the castle and the walls. He discusses the churches and religious buildings within the walls and finishes the tour at the riverside. In Walk no 2, Peter tells of the demolitions which permit the Praça da República to appear as it does today, and then talks of the gardens in the centre of the town, before looking at the chapels and churches on the southern edge of Tavira, and moving back towards the centre, past the old jail. Walk no 3 is on the other side of the river, and shows the flood markers, the governor´s residence and the churches of the northern suburb, finishing at the chapel devoted to those suffering from leprosy, of course on the boundary of the old town.
