Cadaval

In the far north of Lisbon, also integrating the Oeste sub-region, is located the municipality of Cadaval, composed of ten parishes. From its past remain traces of the prehistory and Neolithic, as well as of the Roman presence. The charter, granted by King Fernando, was obtained in 1371. One of the most striking aspects of Cadaval is the Serra de Montejunto, which Área de Paisagem Protegida de Âmbito Regional (Protected Landscape Area of Regional Ambit) has been attractingd more visitors over the times, who run to this place for exploring dens, caves, lagoons, prehistoric fossils and necropolis. The vineyards and the famous Rocha pears abound in these lands; the pão-de-ló do Painho (kind of sponge cake) is much sought after, as well as Montejunto's honey. In the handicrafts are included the porcelain objects, basketry, Arraiolos carpets, dried flower arrangements and the furniture with straw.
