Moita

Situated on the left bank of the Tagus estuary, the municipality of Moita integrates the Lisbon Metropolitan area. The riverfront, with about 20 km length, was the primary factor for the people's settlement. Although little is known about the origin of the village, in 1994 archaeological remains were found in the parish of Gaio, which testify the presence of a Neolithic settlement dedicated to fishing and harvesting of mollusks six thousand years ago. With the construction of the Vasco da Gama bridge, the county won dynamic, because the accessibility became the predominant factor in attracting investments and population, who saw here good future perspectives. However, it is a dorm council, since much of the resident population moves daily to Lisbon, Setúbal and Barreiro for work or to study. The bullfighting tradition has deep roots in the municipality and proof of this are the various bull races taking place throughout the year, especially in the parish of Moita. The procession, held every year in mid-September, where fishermen and "fragateiros" (frigate sailors) pay homage to their patron saint, Nossa Senhora da Boa Viagem, is the highlight of this celebration. The county has currently been suffering a development that meets the characteristics of a population that is increasingly adept of green spaces and sports/leisure. The 1.68 km long bike path presents itself as an asset for those who want to practice sports or simply enjoy the riverfront.
