Aspiring architects and anyone who appreciates modern design should pay a visit to Tavira’s municipal library, which was originally the town prison. Architect João Luís Carrilho da Graça sympathetically and cleverly converted the former prison’s facade and cells into a modern, harmonious cultural space. Opened in 2006, the building houses books, exhibitions and computers.
