Moliceiro Tour

Distance: 120 metres / 2 minutes

Known as the Venice of Portugal, Aveiro also invites you to take a ride along its canals in a typical boat from the region: the Moliceiro. 

The name derives from the vessel’s original use: removing the moliço (sludge) that built up in the canals. After drying, this sludge was used to fertilise farmers’ fields.
