Aveiro 2021 – Portuguese Venice

Located in Centro de Portugal, when visiting Aveiro we discover a landscape with a watermark

Aveiro has an unique natural and urban landscape, dominated by the Ria de Aveiro and the arms of water that reach the urban space and that permanently marked the history, heritage, culture and local identity.

In front of you… the Ria with all the beauty of its landscape mixed with islets and estuaries teeming with biodiversity.

On board one of the typical boats, where the Moliceiro boat stands out, take the opportunity to get to know the city through the canals that, at sunset, turn from silver to gold with the reflection of the sun’s rays. There are other types of tourist transport available that can take you on a wider tour to get to know its main centers of tourist interest, such as the typical neighborhood of fishermen and marnots, the Bairro da Beira-Mar, the old prime area of the city, once walled, Bairro do Alboi, Cais da Fonte Nova or the University of Aveiro.

Aveiro’s identity is ancient, but innovation and modernity are an unmistakable bet of the Municipality. Combined with culture and artistic creativity, they provide a range of great events that can enliven the city throughtout the year, bringing thousands of visitors to what is, admittedly, a candidate for European Capital of Culture 2027 – Aveiro!
