    Location

    Aveiro District

    Favorite thing: 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).

    Moliceiros

    Favorite thing: Aveiro is a paradise for those who enjoy photography. Each time I visit Aveiro I always bring home lots of photos. My favourite spots to shoot while in Aveiro are:
    - the Canal Central: boats and houses reflect on the channel’s water, providing wonderful reflections;
    - Art Nouveaux houses: if you enjoy shooting details and enjoy this architectural style … well, what else may I say?
    - Costa Nova: the typical houses make major opportunities for photos; don’t miss their graphic patterns;
    - Costa Nova: the beautiful beaches, mainly by the end of the day with warm and saturated colours and also the sunsets on the sea, of course;
    - Lighthouse: this is a favourite of mine, as I enjoy shooting lighthouses and this one is very nice.

    There is another place I’d recommend to shoot while in Aveiro, although I have never been there yet: the football stadium. This stadium was built for the European Championship (Euro 2004) and it is very colourful. I’ve seen fantastic photos of graphic patterns shoot here, and I’m sure I won’t miss it next time I visit Aveiro.

    For some examples of photos shoot at the fore mentioned places, check the album “My favourite locations to shoot in Aveiro”.

    Favorite thing: Walk around town. There is so much to see and experience!! And don't forget to visit all those famous sights and enjoy the water in the Baya or go surfing on the Atlantic Ocean!

    Fondest memory: The fantastic esplanades and the nice people. Aveiro reflects Portugese lifestyle as it used to be for centuries.
