Tavira is a energetic sportfishing slot on the Algarve in Portugal ornamented by moving country side made up of red, fig and almond plants. A short move from the city is the wonderful Barril seaside of excellent pristine that extends for over 14 miles. Relaxing among the excellent sand hills on the seaside is what residents call the “Cemitério das Âncoras” or the Graveyard Of Anchor bolts. For decades, Tavira flourished on the Salmon sportfishing market but when the seafood shares dropped and fishers provided up their profession, these anchors were eventually forgotten on the seaside to corrosion.
It’s not certain who was the first to line up the anchors but surprisingly those who followed believed it was an concept worth copying.
The tuna fishers and the sportfishing market is long gone now changed by accommodations and vacationers. But this unusual cemetery continues to be as a memory of the last, when tunas were a living source.
