POLIS Litoral Ria de Aveiro

The Ria that unites us

The territory covered by Ria de Aveiro is a unique place, that offers exceptional conditions to support an economic development and a sustainable tourism and to position itself as an attraction point focused on the contact and enjoyment of nature. It also constitutes a structuring element of landscape for the ecological system and for the economic activity of Região Centro. Its unique physical characteristics, of high sensitivity, require, for its development, to undergo a strategy that effectively articulates the multiple facets of the territory. It was on that basis that the Government opted for the Polis Litoral intervention in Ria de Aveiro.

A Ria that is environmentally preserved, economically dynamic and of multiple life experiences.
