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.
