Estádio do CD das Aves is a multi-use stadium in Vila das Aves, Portugal. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Clube Desportivo das Aves. The stadium holds 8,560 people and was built in 1981.

It underwent many renovations during the new millennium especially in the year 2000, when Desportivo das Aves gained promotion to the Primeira Liga for the second time in their history. [1](in Portuguese) When the stadium was built, there were 12,500 seats available, but it currently seats only 8,560 after the club decided to remove some of its seats.

The French national football team used the stadium as a training ground in preparation for UEFA Euro 2004.
