Inserted in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, Amadora borders Lisbon, Odivelas, Sintra and Oeiras. Due to its proximity to the capital, it is highly sought after by the population, being currently one of the municipalities with the highest population density in the country. Considered as a rich place in water and fertile soils, it is not surprising that the traces of Roman occupation are mainly linked to agricultural exploitation. For many years, it was occupied by people linked to farmers, but in the course of the 17th and 18th centuries, the first nobles began to appear who chose the land as a leisure area. Today, there are numerous green spaces throughout the area, designed so that the population can relax, thus escaping the hustle and bustle of the city, being nicknamed "Garden City".
