Bordering on Cascais and Lisbon is the tranquil municipality of Oeiras which boasts a wide variety of cultural, technological and sporting attractions.
For those in search of culture, a visit to the eighteenth century gardens of the Marquês de Pombal palace set in the heart of the historic centre is a must, as well as the Barcarena Gunpowder Factory, restored at the beginning of the 90’s and now offering a varied collection of cultural exhibits.
Oeiras is also very much geared towards the future, with several technological estates housing companies primarily active in the tertiary sector, such as the Taguspark and Lagoas Park.
On the subject of sport, Oeiras is the traditional venue for major national events, such as the Estoril Tennis Open and the Portuguese Football Cup Final.
One of the area’s biggest attributes is undoubtedly its coastline “watched over” by fortresses built between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries in the Torre, Santo Amaro and Paço d’ Arcos beaches. Its promenade, extending from the S. Julião da Barra Fortress to Paço d’ Arcos is ideal for relaxing seaside walks or sporting activities such as jogging or cycling. There is also the Oeiras recreation port with space for 274 leisure craft.
Oeiras boasts innumerable top quality restaurants where you can sample traditional Portuguese cuisine as well as a wide variety of international dishes, all of a very high standard.
With “something for everyone”, the broad range of attractions offered in this municipality will make your visit to Oeiras unforgettable!
