Conceição de Tavira

Conceicao de Tavira, Gothic Church Conceicao de Tavira, Gothic Church

Conceição de Tavira is a small rural and very typical parish located just North of Cabanas de Tavira and East of the city of Tavira.

With a population of about 1400 permanent inhabitants and a total of 61,000 Sq. Km.

Fishing and farming are the main activities and just like many of the towns in Algarve, it's characterized by its whitewashed houses.

The surrounding area is filled with pleasantly appealing rolling hills filled with Fig and Almond trees.

Its main historical attraction is the statues located inside the Gothic church that houses a 17th century silver holy monstrance (an open or transparent receptacle in which the consecrated Host is exposed for veneration).

Also noteworthy are the beautiful regional crafts and art from local artisans.

For those of you golfers, Conceicao has within its boundaries a very nice golf course.

Benamor Golf is an 18 hole, par 71 nestled among fig trees with wide fairways and difficult path.


Benamor golf was designed by Henry Cotton and is one of the firs golf courses in Eastern Algarve.
