Tavira Anchor Graveyard

4 reviews of Tavira Anchor Graveyard

Diego Gutiérrez Serrano

Rusty anchors


Located on the island of Tavira in the Algarve region of Portugal, there is a beach (Praia do Barril) where you can find more than two hundred rusty anchors. Although the anchors have been purposefully placed out by the locals, the cemetery has the charm of an abandoned place. The anchors are from the old tuna vessels that aren´t used anymore due to lack of resources over the past several years. Today, the island basically thrives from tourism and nothing much remains, besides this strange cemetery, of the old times.
