Lisbon, which is the national capital, is situated 140 miles (225 kilometers) south of Aveiro.
Do visit the the Praca da Republica when you are in Aveiro.
Don't just limit yourself to Aveiro, because Centro has plenty of man-made and natural attractions waiting to be explored. If you've enough time, head 12 miles (19 kilometers) to Agueda. Here you can spend an hour or two visiting the Igreja de Ois da Ribeira and Monument to the Emigrants.
Rent a vehicle and spend some time in Aveiro, a transport and retail hub for the area, less than 1 mile (1. 6 kilometers) away from Aveiro. This bigger city offers a wide range of attractions, such as Costa Nova Beach, Barra Beach (Praia da Barra) and Estadio Municipal de Aveiro. Praca da Republica and Sao Jacinto Beach are some other places worth investigating for those who have more time on their hands.
Every place you visit contains a specific history and the Centro area has its own fair share of stories to tell. The old towns in these parts are well worth visiting. Experience moments of tranquility in Centro's cathedrals.
Special interest tours are an excellent way to experience the special places. So why not join one of the cycling tours and city walking tours. No getaway is really complete without some down time. Wildlife watching is one way to relax here and cycling is another.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, say a fond Adeus (farewell) to the new friends you've made and the places you've enjoyed.
