Learn about the history of Barreiro 

Next to the Tagus Estuary, the area emerged from repopulation after the Christian reconquest, being revived after the arrival of fishermen from the Algarve in the 15th century.

It was in the 18th and 19th centuries that Barreiro began to be an even more developed area with the construction of the Railway Station to Setúbal and Vendas Novas.

From there, the housing began to grow, with the birth of countless properties, commerce, and industries.

Note that in Barreiro, one of the historical landmarks is religion, as seen in the Church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário and the Chapel of Nossa Senhora dos Remédios.

Did you know that Barreiro is a culture aggregator?

Barreiro has been an aggregator of culture since early on: from the warehouses of the Ephemera archive-library of Pacheco Pereira, to the artistic mural by the artist Vhils.

There are already two warehouses that Pacheco Pereira has in Barreiro, where the work of collecting and documenting the collective memory of the parish is carried out. Managed by the Ephemera Cultural Association, they are cultural activity hubs, with exhibitions of historical archives, with collections, posters, photographs, and objects.

In addition, in Barreiro you will find the largest artistic mural by Vhils, a Portuguese artist named Alexandre Manuel Dias Farto.

The mural space connects the Baía do Tejo Business Park to downtown Barreiro, and was created as part of the requalification project of the former industrial area.

The mural is entitled "Up and Down," located in the Santa Bárbara neighborhood and extends for more than 150 meters. With the aim of interpreting and immortalizing the history of the industrial and factory life of the area, this mural attracts many visitors who appreciate art.
