Other points of interest

The closest point of interest to Europarque is the medieval Castle of Santa Maria da Feira, an 11th century construction that played a very important role in the beginnings of Portuguese nationality. It rises above a park in the Feira historical center, about 3km from the conference venue.

About 30km south of the conference site is city of Aveiro with its well-known lagoon, a salt-water basin more than 40km long. Aveiro is also the location of IT-Aveiro, the organizer of Conftele 2009.
