The fishermen on the river Tagus are called 'avieiros'. In the old days, these fishermen came from Vieira de Leiria every winter when the ocean was too rough and dangerous for fishing. They would build wooden houses on stilts suspended over the water to provide shelter.
Come with your parents or teachers and spend a different kind of day out, rich in learning and beautiful scenery. The river fishermen's circuit is really appetising for a day with the family or with your teachers and school friends.
Travelling by train and by boat, this trip on the river Tag will let you see the island of the herons he swallows fishing eagles, bee eaters and other species of birds up close, along with the beautiful Lusitano horses.
