Its streets are filled with the chatter of black-caped students and the soulful tones of fado. The university library, one of the best in Europe, is a Baroque fantasy where the rooms each lead into the next creating a telescope-like effect.

The old cathedral is one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Portugal.

The coastal area stretching from Aveiro to Figueira da Foz and to Peniche is very beautiful with some of the best beaches in the country.
