"Aveiro District" Distrito de Aveiro by solopes

Distrito de Aveiro Travel Guide: 126 reviews and 440 photos

Known as Portuguese Venice, because of the canals that cross the city, and the lagoon, Aveiro dominates the district. Nearby, in the ocean beach, wooden houses in color stripes are another ex-libris of the city. In the northern area of the district deserve attention Espinho, a very lively beach, Santa Maria da Feira, with a beautiful castle and Castelo de Paiva by the Douro River. Inland, Arouca has a monastery with more than thousand years, and south, the capital of roasted suckling pig - Mealhada, gives access to the mandatory Bussaco, or its neigbour thermal city of Luso. "Out of the beaten path" we have some industrial cities, including the capital of shoemakers S. João da Madeira.
