Tavira barlavento algarve Excursion TUI BLUE Falesia
Old town of Tavira

The TUI BLUE Falesia is centrally located on the Algarve coast, so you can visit not only Barlavento to the west, but also Sotavento to the east. "Sotavento Algarvio" is one of Portugal's most impressive regions. With this excursion, you will get to know not only the provincial capital Faro and its historic cathedral, but also another small and enchanting side of East Algarve. In Olhão, at the foot of the Ria Formosa, which is part of the national park of the same name, you can visit the famous fish market. You'll have time here for shopping and lunch. In the afternoon, you'll visit the beautiful coastal village of Cacela Velha, which is an idyllic village in Sotavento with white-washed facades, a tranquil church, and an old fortress overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The next stop is Tavira, where you'll receive a great introduction while walking along the city walls. Next up, you'll stop by a church to enjoy a Fado concert. Fado is the world-famous melancholic and wistful song style that has been recognised by the UNESCO World Heritage programme since 2011.

All information on prices and times, including the possibility to book the excursion before arrival, can be found here. You are also welcome to ask the on-site BLUE Guide at the TUI BLUE Falesia.
