Aveiro lies in a region of mountains furrowed by valleys and fertile lagoon plains. These are bathed by the ria, formed in the sixteenth century as a consequence of the retreat of the sea due to great storms. It covers 11 thousand acres, with four large channels that form estuaries surrounding numerous islands and islets.
The area is rich in fish and waterfowl and has excellent conditions for fishing, both in the estuary and in the sea. Hunting is another possibility and the large stretches of water lend themselves to practicing all kinds of water sports.
The city of Aveiro is crossed by canals, which confer a specific character, and in the old area can be seen as picturesque houses of fishermen, whitewashed and watch, every morning, the auction of fish caught at night, in the Fish Market.
Of all the boats that can be seen in the region, the moliceiro is the most elegant, with perfect lines, bright colors and often decorated in an ingenious and humorous way.
