Here is the river in front of our Tavira hotel, low tide (tidewater part of the river, close to the Atlantic).
The guidebook explained that these rooftops are a characteristic of this area - a result of the shortage of big timbers with the previous ravaging of their local forests in the time of their construction (17-18th century?).
Gerri walking ahead...
Modern day cross walk markings in the form of mosaic stone work of the past.
