Aveiro and its lagoon

May 21st

Aveiro is situated at the edge of a huge lagoon which causes the many canals in the city.

The city looks very pitoresc due to some wonderful houses built in art nouveau architecture.

Five years ago we stayed at a lovely campsite in the little harbour of Bica at the other side of the lagoon. With a bit of luck we find the place. Nothing has changed in five years – except that the restaurant is bankrupt.

The colourful boats of the fishermen (“barcos moliceiros) together with the storks create a very special atmosphere.
