Boats of many colorsTwinned with Newark, New Jersey, this town not too far south of Porto looks absolutely nothing like Newark, so don't be afraid to go for a visit dont' worry about fearing for your life if you stray down the wrong streets (but I do love Newark too).
Other than the old art nouveau style buildings and some interesting squares (but not the current road works), what I found impressive in Aveiro were these boats in the canal. Their paint jobs were amazing and very colorful. I couldn't find out what their purpose is because I don't think fisherman go out on them but they did remind me of the boats in the southern French towns of Sete and Meze.
