A region open to innovation, but that does not allow this same innovation to interfere with old traditions, from architecture to the rural environment, where several aspects of the traditional Portuguese construction are materialized in the region.
Aveiro also preserves in the neighborhood of Beira Mar some tiled, tiled houses, authentic living testimonies of ancient marnotos [salineiros] and devout fishermen of S. Gonçalinho and S. Roque.
The fishermen of Ílhavo’s fishing campaigns moved to that region and began building “haystacks” to keep nets and other fishing materials. Initially large and without interior divisions only later were partitioned with wooden partitions and “decorated” with oyster shells.
Immediately afterwards, the village grew a lot, especially during the Portuguese Discoveries period, which opened Portugal to the sea and brought merchants and navigators from various parts of Europe to the banks of the Ria. ( salt water river ).
