    Tavira - Portugal

    I like the centre of Tavira - it shows modernity with respect for tradition, it has commercial activity without the stress of many other cities, it is touristy, but... not much.

    OK. A balanced place that receives well.

    This open space was where the towns market once stood until it was moved in 1887 to improve hygiene. In the middle is a Monument to the dead of World War 1 (1914 - 1918) which was inaugurated by the Minister of War, General Daniel Rodrigues de Sousa, on 9 April 1933. It is a tribute not only to those who perished in this war but in particular to the military's Battalion 3 of the Regiment of Infantry No. 4 (composed of personnel recruited in the Algarve and prepared in Tavira), who died in battle in Flanders in the north of France.
