Between the mountain and the plain

Albergaria-a-Velha is situated in the place where the mountains end and the plain begins. It is crossed by Vouga river and its tributary river, Caima, as well as by the east coast of Aveiro “ria”. In 1120, Queen D. Teresa built here a shelter for poor travellers. Its foundation as a council dates back to1835. The houses of the council’s headquarters have also some peculiar elements. The village Frossos is located 7 km southwest from Albergaria-a-Velha. Its fields are irrigated by Vouga river, and nearby the calm waters of Aveiro river. Among the local beauties, we find century-old trees and ancient chapels.
