Aveiro - PORTUGAL
Another card from my friends of the POSTCROSSING Forum, this time a picture of Aveiro (my hometown) where the meeting took place. Thank you very much Ninocas for remembering me and many thanks to Edite, Vitória, Rita, José, Paula, Sofia Catarina, Duarte and Miguel for signing it. This postcard took 4 days to arrive!
Situated in the Baixo Vouga sub-region between the Atlantic Ocean and the mountainous surroundings of its neighboring districts, Aveiro’s rich landscape is characterized by its sandy coast, beautiful estuary, gardens and parks. Commonly nicknamed the ‘Portuguese Venice’, the enchanting capital city of Aveiro is crossed by a shimmering canal and is considered one of the most charming destinations in the country for its brightly patterned "Moliceiro" boats, array of pastel-tinted Art Nouveau buildings and its calm urban atmosphere.
