Aveiro, the Venice of Portugal

Aveiro, 70km south of Porto, on the west Coast of Portugal is called the Venice of Portugal, due its canals that crossed the town navigated by colourful boats, traditionally used to harvest seaweed.  Aveiro is a popular tourist destination, famed for the canals but also for Nouveau architecture. The city lies on the edge of the Ria de Aveiro, an expansive saltwater lagoon that was historically farmed for its seaweed, salt and bountiful fish. Here I spent the most part of my life, and where I have my family. Do not miss Aveiro next time you visit Portugal and Porto, who won’t regret I promise.
