Aveiro - PORTUGAL

Another card from the POSTCROSSING annual encounter that happened in Aveiro last July, 14th and that I hadn't the chance to attend... thank you very much to my Forum Friends Ninocas, José Guedes, Sofia, Edite, Miguel, Catarina, Rita Matos, Duarte, Zé Pombal, Vitória and Paula that signed this postcard and to José that send it (the mail stamp from Massamá revealed you!) - I'm really looking forward to the 2014 enconter!

Moliceiro Boats in the Canal Central, Aveiro - PORTUGAL
 
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.
