Stop At: Ria de Aveiro, Aveiro Portugal

Moliceiro (boat) experience. This boat has been for centuries represented a vessel for the harvesting and transportation of moliço (a kind of seaweed) in the Ria de Aveiro. At this point, these could be moved to the sail, the rod or the tow. One of the most distinctive features of these Aveiran boats is their decoration. They are decorated with paintings depicting, almost always, satirical or comic day-to-day situations.

Currently, these boats are only used for recreational purposes.

The most picturesque image of Costa Nova is the one of its seafront where haystacks houses are lined with brightly colored stripes alternating with white. Built by fishermen for shelter or storage of fishing gear, these restored haystacks houses are nowadays pleasant holiday homes.

Duration: 1 hour
