We have a few stories to tell you! But for stories, you should go to the Arte Nova Museum, which allows you to learn about the social and cultural context of the origin of the movement while you sit in Captain Major Pessoa's tea house and listen to live jazz music. Quite an experience!Next, we'll take a 45-minute ride aboard one of the traditional "Moliceiros" boats, similar in design to the Venetian gondolas. Before finishing, we will make a last stop at the Monument to José Estêvão Coelho de Magalhães, one of the most illustrious politicians in the history of Portugal. But what about all the recommendations and picturesque spots we've told you about? You have free time to explore the city at your leisure!

Costa Nova We'll then leave Aveiro and head towards Costa Nova, one of Portugal's most spectacular beaches, known for the iconic striped houses that line the bay. You will be able to take pictures and enjoy a guided tour of the beach most loved by lovers of water sports such as surfing, windsurfing or sailing. Capelha do Senhor da Pedra This picturesque 17th century chapel is located on the rocks of the beach of the same name in Vila Nova de Gaia. Its privileged location on the granite makes it stand defiantly in front of the Atlantic despite not reaching 10 metres in height. Built on a hexagonal plan in 1686 in a place of pagan cults, it stands out for its main altar with Baroque carvings and the two side altarpieces that surround the crucified Christ. The access stairway is 150 metres from the promenade, so it is necessary to cross the sand and stones to reach it. This means that, at high tide, it is impossible to walk to it as it is surrounded by the sea. It promises to be an unforgettable experience, book now!
