Américo's cards

Américo is on holidays in Algarve and he sent me these beautiful cards from there.

Tavira is a portuguese city situated in the east of Algarve, on the south coast of Portugal.
The moorish occupation in Tavira between the 8th and 13th centuries left its mark on the agriculture, architecture and culture of the area. That influence can still be seen in Tavira today with its whitewashed buildings, moorish style doors and rooftops.

Another city in Algarve and this is also my 1st card from there.

On the card there's the Main Church, a temple from the 18th and 19th centuries. The church most striking feature is its elegant bell tower.

Algarve is a synonime of beach and sun, so Américo had to send me a beach card.
Camilo Beach is a small beach in between golden cliffs, with interesting rock formations. its waters and limpid and calm, great for diving and scuba diving. The access to the beach is made throught a long stairway.
