About Aveiro city
Aveiro is a medium-size town in the north of Portugal, some 60 Km south of Oporto and only 8 Km from the Atlantic Ocean. Aveiro is crossed by canals, which give it a unique identity. In the ‘old town’ tourists can see typical fishermen houses close to the canals. Early in the morning, a variety of fresh fish caught overnight can be seen at the “Mercado do Peixe” (Fish Market). The ‘moliceiro’ is an elegant boat adapted to the lagoon work. Perfectly lined, painted with bright colours and with humorous decorations, this is a symbol of Aveiro. Well preserved dunes and rich fauna and flora may be seen at the São Jacinto Natural Reserve. The seaside includes a variety of other places of interest (e.g., the typical houses of “Costa Nova”). Those who appreciate good food may taste the delicious eel stew and a range of sea food. However, Aveiro is especially known for the famous ‘ovos moles’ (soft eggs), sweetened egg yolk in candied casings with a variety of shapes.
