Aveiro is a very small town with a working port, but has the vibrancy of a small city. Colorful art nouveau houses and typical buildings with tiled facades gather around tranquil canals that lead to shallow lagoons.
It’s a handsome town with large squares and little footbridges that make it feel like a Portuguese Amsterdam sans the hookers and drugs (at least I saw neither).
Here is part i of a picture gallery that celebrates the beautiful town of Aveiro. Get your looking gear around this lot.
