Convento do Carmo (Aveiro, Portugal)
Going to be in Aveiro for a whole month, and need to know where internet cafes are.
The last time I was there, i found a spot near city hall? that lets you use the internet for perhaps 30 mins., something along those lines.
So for any of you locals, any other places?
Thanks in advance..
Re: Internet Access
What brings you again to Aveiro?? It's not everyday one can answer a question about Aveiro. Unfortunately, for now I won't be able to give you a good answer since I hardly ever use internet outside home/job/university. I'm not the kind of person who likes to carry his laptop everywhere... actually I don't have one lol. I already spend the majority of the days standing in front of a computer and that's more than enough.
As you might have noticed Aveiro is a small city but it can keep you busy for one whole month.
The place you were talking about in front of the city hall is known as "Aveiro Digital". The only internet cafe I know is near the main church (quite an ugly one lol... if you didn't visit it during your previous stay don't even bother to go there this time), close to the museum of Aveiro and just next to one bookshop. You can also use some computers at the university and if you have a wireless capable laptop you have free internet access at the Glicinias Shopping Center (with Jumbo supermarket). I'm sure you can access internet on many other places. I just hardly notice them.
I presume you already know this huuuuge city quite well but let me know if you're interested in making local friends and experience a little bit more of our culture.
Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.
Travel Tips for Aveiro
Aveiro is situated on the North of Portugal:
. about 250 km north of Lisbon
. about 70 km south of Porto
Aveiro is the capital city of the District, and accesses are good both by car (highway both from Lisbon and Porto) and by train or bus (also departing from the previously mentioned main cities).

If you enjoy seeing football matches of local teams when visiting a city or country, check the fore coming games’ schedules at Beira-Mar’s website (available in Portuguese only): www.beiramar.pt
Costa Nova – beaches
Apart from houses, Costa Nova is also renowned for its nice and long beaches. Sand is white and sea is somewhat cold, but nevertheless very enjoyable. Even visiting during Winter months, a walk along the sea is always pleasant, so don’t miss the chance to get to know these beaches. For those not interest in walking on the sand, there is a wooden path which runs along the beaches.
Costa Nova is situated about 11km from Aveiro.
Art Nouveaux houses
In Aveiro there are several noticeable Art Nouveaux styled houses, which are doubtless a must see when visiting this city.
The houses depicted on my photo are situated along the main channel, being that one of them nowadays houses the tourism office. These houses are not opened for visits, and may only be admired from the outside. As you may see on the photo, some of them are refurbished and well taken care of, whilst others aren’t.
Catedral e Cruzeiro de S. Domingos
The Catedral and Cruzeiro de S. Domingos date from the XV Century and used to be convent from the Dominican Monks.
The cruzeiro is barely on the picture, extreme left, and it is said to be in Portuguese Gothic style.
