It is on the coast of Portugal that Aveiro is located, a city nicknamed as the Portuguese “Venice”. It was given such distinction due to the famous Ria (Lagoon), that goes into the center of the city through the charming channels where we can find the traditional Moliceiro boats. Having its roots in the sea, the city has its origins on an avid fishing community, still being proudly and fairly characterized by a people of the sea. Here we can find the salines of Portugal and one of the largest ceramic factories, now transformed into a cultural center. Through these lands go the rails of the famous railway station from the 19th century, having its facade decorated with illustrative tiles of the region. And not less important is the Cathedral, located next to the Aveiro Museum, which is housed in the former Convent of Jesus. Also, don’t miss the opportunity to visit Costa Nova, an area known not only for its privileged location between the sea and the estuary, but especially for its very famous typical houses with colorful stripes.
