© all rights reserved by B℮n Aveiro in Portugal, is perhaps one of the country’s most unique and inspiring cities, and yet it remains a hidden gem. This is a city quite unlike any other, a place where urban sophistication and modernity meet and merge with the unique marine environment in which Aveiro, Portugal, has its ancient roots. No visit to Aveiro would be complete without taking the time to explore the expansive lagoon and canals that weave their way around and through the city. There is something about a city set amongst water that adds a certain charm and magic, and Aveiro is no exception. Indeed, Aveiro has been hailed as the Venice of Portugal for its pretty maritime setting. Aveiro canals and the lagoon have been the centre of its industry and economy for hundreds of years, and simply taking the time to wander along their banks is like taking a journey through history. Lined with a mixture of grand buildings and former fishermen’s houses, the canals are a festival of colour, with brightly coloured paintwork and attractive azulejo panels for which Portugal is renowned. However, it is the bobbing fishing boats, or moliceiros as they are known locally, which really bring the Aveiro canals to life. The moliceiros are shaped long and narrow boats, with a styled bow and stern which are often highly decorated, with ornate images demonstrating tongue-in-cheek humour about everyday situations. Moliceiros were traditionally used to harvest seaweed, although they are more commonly used these days for tourist activity, and hopping in one to take a tour round the city from the water’s perspective is the perfect way of whiling away an hour or two during your stay. Aveiro is door de kleurrijke huizen, gondels, kanaaltjes en prachtige stranden een ideale bestemming voor iedereen die de Atlantische kust van Portugal wil ervaren. Toeristen die belanden in het oude havenstadje Aveiro denken soms wel eens in het verkeerde land te zijn aangekomen. Met talrijke kanaaltjes, gondels, een lagune en zeer kleurrijke architectuur heeft het inderdaad wel wat weg van het Italiaanse Venetië. Voeg daar ook nog aan toe de prachtige stranden van de Costa da Prata, wat vertaald kan worden als de Portugese zilverkust, en je zult begrijpen waarom het kleine, rustgevende Aveiro erg populair is bij zowel Portugese als internationale bezoekers. Niet ver van grotere steden zoals Porto of Coimbra, leent het zich bij uitstek voor hen die enkele dagen aan de kust willen doorbrengen. Wij hadden alleen de hele dag regen. Wat Aveiro echter het meest bijzonder maakt zijn de kanaaltjes welke de stad via de lagune verbinden met de Atlantische Oceaan, Hoewel niet helemaal te vergelijken met het veel grotere Venetië, is een rondvaart in een moliceiro zoals de gondels hier heten zonder meer aan te raden.
