Introduction

Aveiro is a popular tourist destination, located next to the sea and the estuary. Also, it is crossed by a network of canals in which the moliceiros (local boats) meander.

Nowadays, Aveiro is a bustling university city, with an authentic fishermen’s district and numerous grand religious buildings.

It is also famous for its Art Nouveau buildings that are worth seeing. Many are located all along the main channel, but there are some others a bit more hidden in other locations.
