Loures

The municipality of Loures has several points of interest, from rural constructions, such as quintas, mills and wine cellars, to other monuments of significance for Portuguese history and culture. The famous and valued light and aromatic white wine of Bucelas is made in this municipality, and a wine and harvest festival is held in the second weekend of October.

A natural highlight in the north of the municipality is the Parque Municipal do Cabeço de Montachique, with 32 hectares of woodland, fauna and flora, and in the east is the Parque do Tejo, a zone of calm waters that is a privileged place to watch various species of birds, particularly the exuberant flamingos.Religious monuments include the Igreja Matriz de Loures, a 16th century church, and the Palácio dos Arcebispos which was reconstructed in the 18th century and has interesting figures on its stairs.

The Castelo de Pirescoxe, dating from the 15th century, still has embattled medieval towers, now rebuilt with an auditorium and exhibition rooms.
You can also visit the Museu Municipal de Loures, inaugurated in 1998, with temporary and permanent exhibitions (agricultural implements, rural furniture) and the Museu de Cerâmica, inaugurated in 2000, where you can visit exhibitions of pottery manufactured in the Sacavém pottery factory and also kiln 18.
