Moliceiros (tour boats) -Aveiro

Aveiro has canals along the streets (a mini-Venice). These boats were once used to gather seaweed which was then dried and sold, but no longer – they are just for tourism. The town used to be a major city and major salt producer but a huge storm in the 1500's closed the entrance from the Atlantic so there is now just a small salt production.
