Aveiro is one of my favourite cities, known as the Venice of Portugal.

Located near the Atlantic Ocean, this city is famous for several reasons. Here’s a few if you decide to visit it:

. Natural lagoons

. System of canals with boats (moliceiros) similar to Venetian gondolas 

. Elegant architecture from the Art Nouveau period

. A famous pastry: ovos moles – made of egg yolks

. Its picturesque streets

. The beaches: Praia da BarraPraia da Costa Nova (with its famous typical houses of striped colors facades)

What I love most is the city’s atmosphere, open to the canals, go to Praia da Costa Nova to enjoy its dunes, sit on a terrace and have a nice cup of coffee.
