A new project, an old waterfront: municipality of Oeiras

The Municipality of Oeiras, with 162.000 inhabitants and 45.8 Km2, is located on the left shore of the Tagus river estuary having the Fortress of S. Julião da Barra great appearance. Being between Lisbon and the Cascais (a gambling place at Casino do Estoril) the sea coast was not given much use on the second half of the 2Oth century, except the Marginal road and Estoril Railway that made difficult the use and the access to the coast line. At the end of 1 980’s and beginning of the 1 990’s decade it has started a strong movement in the developing and modernization of Oeiras, giving rise to the re- qualification of all its seaside.
