Roaming through Aveiro is the same as diving in the waters of Centro de Portugal. Known as the “Portuguese Venice”, the city is quietly dominated by the Ria de Aveiro, described by Saramago as “a living body that connects the land to the sea like a huge heart.”
The codfish route will take you to the city of Ílhavo that has a long sea-related tradition. In Ílhavo we will visit the amazing Ílhavo Maritime Museum and its one-of-a-kind codfish aquarium, as well as the Museum Ship Santo André and the gaff that once belonged to the mythical White Fleet, Navio Santa Maria Manuela.
Comur is a prestigious preserved food factory located in Murtosa, Aveiro region, and truly a success story!
This Museum was awarded in 2003 the Mies van der Rohe Prize for Architecture.
Santa Maria Manuela is a rare four masted gaff first launched in 1937.
