Many local attractions in Tavira time including historical and recreational know as the most picturesque place in Portugal.Tavira is one of the most attractive towns in the Algarve and its origin dates back to around 2.000 BC. During the occupation of the Algarve by the Moors this town was considered of great importance due to its fishing industry. Dom Paio Peres Correia took it from the Moors in anger in 1242 after seven of his principal Knights were killed during a period of truce. In the 17th Century the port was of considerable importance, shipping produce such as salt, dried fish and wine. Like most of the Algarve its buildings were all virtually destroyed by the earthquake of 1755.
Cabanas is a former fishing village, about 7Km from the city to the East side. It holds a little more than 1000 permanent residents, and its beautiful and clean beaches turn it into a popular tourist destination in the summer. This parish was established as such in 1997.
The village structure is composed by a long line of low-rise houses, shops, bars and restaurants facing the Ria Formosa Nature Park.It is a 10 minute walk from the villa complex.
The history of Cabanas goes back to the year of 1734, at the same time the tuna fish fishing activity started, originating a need for the creation of cabans (yes cabanas is the Portuguese word for cabans) to store all the fishing tools and the growth of the community. For more than 20 years these were just seasonal residence, and only around 1757-58 some fisherman decided to build their houses permanently.
This parish still lives mainly from fishing, contributing to the enrichment of the local gastronomy with products like tuna fish, razor clams, etc. Although the strong connection and dependence from fishing, Cabanas also depends very much from tourism, being the most visited parish along the year. The first accomodation facilities - Pedras da Rainha - built around 1973, generated a high number of work opportunities for residents. From there the dedication to tourism has been clear, revealing a promising future.
Nowadays Cabanas offers to everyone a rich cultural heritage, from its fauna and flora, to the diversity of accomodation and gastronomy.
There are a good selection of bars and restaurants in the village - enjoy local fish specialities and wine at very cheap prices! Everything is within walking distance - supermarket, bars, good selection of restaurants and the beach. Cabanas beach can be reached by a 2 min boat ride and has 3km of golden sands
