Oliveira de Azeméis

The municipality of Oliveira de Azeméis is part of the greater metropolitan area of Porto, in the region of Entre Douro e Vouga, about 208 m above sea level, and its boundaries communicate with eight of the main regional municipalities. Alongside this privileged geographic position, it has good accessibility both by road (A1, IC2 or EN224) as by train (Vale do Vouga line), which has contributed to the intense industrialization of the municipality. Higher education is also a development focus in the municipality, with the Escola Superior de Design, Gestão e Tecnologias da Produção de Aveiro Norte (ESAN) of Universidade de Aveiro and the Escola Superior de Enfermagem da Cruz Vermelha Portuguesa de Oliveira de Azeméis. Tourism also represents a strong commitment of the county, enforcing the diverse and important architectural, built, natural and cultural heritage, as well as streamlining the business and sport tourism, two areas with great projection both inside the country and abroad. The cultural offer is notable for events such as the Ciclo da primavera and the Mercado à Moda Antiga, with old-fashioned tents, craftsmen, bakers of Ul, agricultural products, utensils and ancient costumes, which attract thousands of visitors. The craft is represented by the basketry, baskets, strip baskets, copper and glass parts. Among other interesting sites, the Parque de La Salette deserves a special mention for its beauty and biological richness, and the chapel with the same name, a fine specimen of the neomedieval architecture of the 19th century.
