Tavira «city»

Before coming to Faro we had already decided to explore a little more of the Algarve than just the capital and one of the towns on our list was Tavira. In the end we only got to visit one other town because we spent most of the time on the rooftop terrace at the hostel instead of travelling around, hehe. Relaxation is very important! We slept in today as well and then took the train to Tavira in the early afternoon. As Faro is the quietest town I have ever visited, Tavira was like a real «city» for us, haha! Here are some pictures from the trip:

We found a beautiful garden on the top of the hill!

This strange flower is originally from Paraguay and Brazil, but now it can be found in Tavira as well, haha!

We stayed there the whole afternoon and did some grocery shopping before taking the train back to Faro. Tomorrow we are going to Lisbon to spend a couple of days there, do some sightseeing and some shopping, and maybe meet some friends from Porto as well. Should be great! Happy Easter to you all!
