Panoramic view at Tavira, Portugal

After a day of walking, join the company of a gin tonic and let the sunset working its magic at this rooftop in the upper part of Tavira.

You might have spent your day walking or biking and, at the end of the day, you are looking for a place to chill out.

Tavira is a nice town and along the river Gilão you will find a lot of bars.

As you can guess, during high season, most of the bars downtown will be quite crowded.

Not at the center of Tavira but still, at walkable distance, you can find the panoramic bar of the Maria Nova Lounge Hotel.

If you are a photographer, I can say this is a must-go place to shoot.

During summer, the sunset is quite late and usually with warmer colors.

Off-season you can get an earlier sunset and additionally the town is more illuminated because there is still some commercial activity.

Because is a rooftop bar, it stands higher up and you can enjoy the light breeze of warm summer nights.

If gin is your drink, take a chance on that.
During the last years, a set of new Portuguese gin brands appeared in the market.

Portuguese gin, who could have thought about that?

One brand, in particular, is quite different and I like it: Gin Nao

Gin Nao has some taste and aroma from port wine barrels, lovely.

With a slightly sophisticated but relaxed environment, this bar is one of the best bars in Tavira.

Try it and let me know.
