Aveiro is another of those "Venice of the ..." towns.
It lies about 55km south of Porto on a network of lagoons and waterways. The traditional style boats now largely serve the tourist industry. Some salt flats are still in use.
During the second invasion, Wellington attempted to get a force in boats ahead of Soult as he withdrew to Oporto. He was unable to get sufficient numbers in place.
