Mar & Ria (full day)

Walk along the dunes in the Natural Reserve of São Jacinto, enjoy the local fauna and flora, watch closely the fragile balance of the dunes’ ecosystem and fill your lungs with the distinctive breeze coming from the sea. Being introduced to the traditional fishing method called Arte Xávega or contacting the master builders of the typical boats, the moliceiros, are unforgettable experiences to live in the beautiful fishing village of Torreira. Discover also the old production method of eels in marinade sauce through the Museum of Comur – Fábrica de Conservas da Murtosa. This itinerary would not be complete without a boat ride on amoliceiro (a boat once used for the transport of seaweed – moliço, for agricultural lands) which begins in one of Murtosa’s piers and crosses the Ria de Aveiro and its canals. And last but not least, a gastronomic experience is a must: seafood, fish or the traditional eels, a delicacy for the most adventurers .
