Amadora

Until recently, Amadora was a predominantly rural area, but it is now a highly developed town, although it has preserved some interesting monuments. Marking the boundary with the city of Lisbon, are the Portas de Benfica, a curious construction from the early 20th century with eight turrets, where traffic used to pay a fee, like an old-fashioned toll.

Casa Roque Gameiro is an essential visit, not just because it is the former home of the painter and houses part of his collection, but also because it is a perfect example of the architectural concept of the "Casa Portuguesa".


An important archaeological discovery in 1932 was the Grutas de Carenque, dating back to the third millennium bce. Fundamental for an understanding of Portuguese prehistory, the caves are a necropolis with three collective sepulchres carved out of the rock, examples of Mediterranean burial culture. Guided  visits can be arranged by appointment at the Museu Municipal de Arqueologia da Amadora.


It is also in Amadora that the Aqueduto das Águas Livres begins, and the Mãe d'Água Nova and Mãe d'Água Velha are both open to visitors.
While you are here, visit the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Conceição da Lapa.
