Just makes Tavira even more special. The roman structure is magical specially in the evening.Romantic and a special place. Look at the lovers padlocks when you cross it or take a seat and take the views on the very hold stone seats!

A nice picturesque bridge that links the two sides of Tavira. Pleasant for a stroll and watching the fish or birds. Shame about the graffiti in places, and the less appealing bridges downstream. You can get a nice photo from the Eastern side looking towards...More
