The Best Hostels in Aveiro (Costa de Prata)

Aveiro is an unusual and remarkable town where unique development has been driven by the surrounding salt marshes and lagoons. The town is characterized by bold Art Nouveau buildings, man-made canals and ornate vessels, all of which once served the marine agriculture but are now adapted for tourism. Aveiro is unlike any other city in Portugal. It is highly recommended for those seeking something a little different and for those who want a relaxing overnight trip, coupled together with a visit to region's finest beaches; which are superb in this spectacular city. Aveiro is often called the Venice of Portugal because of its many canals with boats that course through them. The delightful "Moliceiros" boats, similar in design to gondolas, are painted in bright colors and have motifs that depict scenes from the town's history. These boats, originally used to harvest seaweed, now serve a much more glamorous purpose in transporting tourists around the town's canals. The beautiful boats are made in the heart of Aveiro, along the central canal and a short cruise allows tourists to glide past Aveiro's agricultural roots, historic buildings and modern developments. When visiting the area, here are some great budget friendly options for accommodations.
