Albergaria-a-Velha

Situated in the District of Aveiro, the municipality of Albergaria-a-Velha is rich in water resources, being bathed by Calm and Vouga rivers, which greatly contribute to the fertility of the agricultural fields. Agriculture is, along with the textile and wood industry, precisely one of the most prevalent economic sectors. If you are visiting, we suggest a walk in the Monte da Senhora do Socorro Park, the Plátanos Park or Boca do Carreiro Park, where no fresh air and tranquility are missing. When it comes to the historical heritage, the highlights are the various monuments of religious nature such as the Igreja Matriz, the Capela do Divino Espírito Santo or the Capela de São Sebastião. If you like to eat well and if you are especially fond of fish, you won't want to miss tasting the famous fish stews of Vouga river, as well as the eels and lampreys cooked in the traditional regional way. The lace and embroidery are still the most significant craft activities. On a cultural and popular level, you will find the best of Albergaria-a-Velha in the common "Albergaria conVIDA"-Regional Handicrafts and Gastronomy Fair, which is held in the month of June.
