Municipality that “Sets the pace”
Situated between the city of Lisbon and Cascais to the west along the ocean coast known as “a linha” or the route of Marginal Lisboa, Oeiras is the win-win for both leisure and active lifestyles offering the combination of calm residential coastal feel and opportunity for a lot of sports. Its proximity to the city of Lisbon makes it a very good destination for a quiet, yet fulfilling life. Points of interest include forts of São Julião and São Bruno, fantastic Piscina Oceânica, as well as some remarkable architectural examples of Portuguese Baroque and Rococo style mansions such as Palácio do Marquês de Pombal or Royal Palace of Caxias.
Oeiras is one of the most active and entrepreneurial municipalities in the Lisbon district. It has seen a lot of foreign investments lately, and City Hall is doing a lot to promote the municipality as an attractive investment destination. Oeiras is home of some of several business parks, office block buildings and headquarters of several high-profile institutions, making it one of the municipalities in the spotlight and the best property development sites in this part of Portugal.
