None of the large family ethnographic boats and long descent have the grace and the decorative value of the moliceiro Aveiro´ of Ria.
The moliceiros are true rarities that embellish the channels of the lagoon with its jaunty colored prows and sterns uplifted poly chrome festival of naive paintings, gliding elegantly on the blackened and lodacentas waters.
In addition, we find a groove moliceiro allowing the lagoon waters using to its impressive sailing and with the most diverse traditional subjects such as moldings with floral and marine motifs.
