Living in Amadora

Amadora is still known by many locals as 'The Former Porcalhota'. The city took its old name from the daughter of an early landowner and although many people living in Amadora now commute to Lisbon, this history is not forgotten. Today, it's a busy urbanized city of 175,000, but expatriates living in Amadora have plenty of heritage to explore. For example, the Casa Roque Gameiro, a typical traditional “Portuguese House”, was the home of a well-known local artist. For expats with an interest in history, must-see sights include the Roman Villa of Quinta da Bolacha and an impressive Aqueduct, also Roman, which dates from around the 3rd century. For expatriates in Amadora who are looking for culture, the Amadora International Comics Festival takes place once a year and a number of local towns provide plenty of character for expatriates living in Amadora to explore as well.

Moving to Amadora

The city is situated to the north west of Lisbon, which is well served for both national and international travel. Expats moving to Amadora will more often than not travel through the Portuguese capital, which is well-linked to Amadora by both road and rail. To help make the relocation and transition to this busy and rapidly urbanized city as smooth and easygoing as possible, we suggest browsing the InterNations Expat Magazine, which is a great collection of articles on everything from expat finance and insurance to living abroad and cross-cultural communication. Our website also has a sizeable selection of content from other InterNations members, who have shared their experiences of moving to cities like Amadora and have plenty of tips and advice to impart. Moving to Amadora should be a comfortable and straightforward transition, with the beautiful Portuguese capital within easy reach on one side and the coast on the other. InterNations is there to help expatriates moving to Amadora settle in as swiftly as possible, so you can get out and enjoy these exceptional surroundings.

Working in Amadora

Being very close to the Portuguese coast, Amadora has a subtropical Mediterranean climate with mild winters and hot summers – not to mention some great beaches within easy reach. Being so close to Lisbon is undoubtedly another big benefit for global minds keen on cultural exploration – the Portuguese capital is a truly global city, with a strong international community and plenty of opportunities to socialize with fellow expatriates. You can get information and tips on making the most of life in European cities like Amadora from the InterNations website and, of course, expats working in Amadora often wish to find an international network closer to home. The InterNations discussion groups, forums and private communications provide the easiest way to do this and arranging a meet-up or networking is something expatriates in Amadora shouldn't find too much of a challenge.
