Activity description
Would you like to spend an unforgettable day in Portugal knowing the traditions of the amazing city of Aveiro?

If you want to go sightseeing in Portugal, the northern area has magical corners full of traditions, culture and a monumental and artistic heritage present in many of its towns and cities. In addition to its beautiful and kilometer beaches of fine sand, you can discover fishing villages of traditional houses that have remained intact over time. It is the case of Aveiro.

A city linked to the sea and known for its canals, hence it is called the "Venice of Portugal". The old salt warehouses of the estuary are still preserved in its old quarter. And it is that the activity of the exploitation of salt has always been linked to the city.

Did you know that in the 10th century there were more than 400 marinas in the then called Alavarium? At that time, Countess Mumadona Dias referred to this fact, being recorded in the National Archives of Torre do Tombo.

To know in depth its history, we offer you a pleasant experience with a thematic visit to the Salinas de Aveiro so that you know first-hand the traditions of saline exploitation and its close relationship with the city.

Here, sea salt is the protagonist. Coming from seawater, it is the result of the natural evaporation process. In addition, its collection is by hand. The job of gathering is the result of ancestral techniques known to groundhogs. An artisanal sea salt whose flavor is devoid of additives and is rich in natural elements such as natural iodine, magnesium, zinc, etc.

Getting close to Aveiro, getting to know its famous canals and visiting a beautiful natural landscape environment is possible by doing activities like this.

“Come to this beautiful one of the North of Portugal and take advantage to discover how the ingenuity of the sea water, the sun and the wind have created one of the wonders of Aveiro, the salt.”
