Short historical review

In the late sixteenth, early seventeenth century, the instability of the vital communication between the Ria and the sea led to the closure of the channel, preventing the use of the port and creating unsanitary conditions, caused by the stagnant waters of the lagoon.
In 1759, D. Joseph I raised Aveiro city. In the new town was named New Bragança instead of Aveiro, Royal Charter by April 11, 1759. With the fall from power of the Marquis of Pombal, after D. Mary I became queen in 1777, then sent back to this city to its previous name.
