Full description

Fished since the beginning of the 16th century in the cold waters of Newfoundland, and cured in Portugal with salt, codfish is one of the most important elements of the Portuguese gastronomical culture.

It is always present at the table during Christmas supper or during any other festive day. The food of the poor in the past has today become the “one thousand and one ways” to cook, a status of delicacy.  See it in Ilhavo, the land of codfish fishermen, in a one-of-a-kind museum in the world with codfishes in a giant tank, and taste it in the magnificent restaurant at the Hotel Vista Alegre. After lunch, visit the Factory Museum and the Vista Alegre Shop, the most exquisite utilitarian and artistic porcelain made in Portugal. En route, you will also visit Aveiro the “Portuguese Venice“ and taste its sweet egg pastries.
