Oeiras facing its Future

Oeiras, located in the heart of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (LMA), has had a journey that has transformed the municipality into an undeniable reference for territorial development in Portugal. Today it is a leader in the fields of science, technology and innovation and was the first municipality to eliminate shanties, provinding decent housing to all residents. We intend to go further, continuing to develop the quality of life of our residents and everyone who works here; providing unique experiences to those who visit us; contributing to the consolidation of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area and to the projection of Portugal in the world.
