Aveiro and region

Traditionally, Aveiro is known for its canals that flow trough the city, for its characteristic boats, the Moliceiros, for its salt-pans and for its sweet delicacies. On arriving in Aveiro, any visitor will also take in the youth, vigour and dynamism that Aveiro exhibits. Despite its considerable growth in recent years, the city of Aveiro has been able to preserve its quality of life and offer access to the infra-structures and services of any modern urban centre.

Today, Aveiro is an industrial city, a hub of commerce and services and also a centre for culture and leisure, with a burgeoning offer in various forms; cinema, theatre, art exhibitions, music, dance, the plastic arts, science, technology, water sports, night-life …

The Symposium will be held at the Cultural and Congress Center of Aveiro, the old ceramics factory “Jerónimo Pereira de Campos”, one of the most emblematic buildings of the city.

The Beaches and the Ria (Estuary of Aveiro)

Costa Nova is a small village overlooking both the Ria and the sea, very well known for its typical houses and for its long beach with white and thin sand. In its main avenue you’ll find some charming wooden houses painted in strips of vivid colours “the palheiros” that will make good photos to take back home.

The ocean is quite boisterous sometimes, as it is common in the northern beaches of the country, providing good conditions for surf, body board and windsurf. The lagoon here is also an excellent place for the practice of various nautical sports.

Barra is just two kilometres after Costa Nova. The long strip of land ends here. Its main attraction is its imposing Lighthouse, the highest of Portugal, the 2nd in Europe and the 3rd in the world. Built between 1885 and 1893, the cylinder of its body is more than 60meters high and the flashes of lightning can be seen from 60kms of distance, in the open sea.
