Montijo is a municipality located in the district of Setúbal, mostly delimited by the Tagus River.

Its history was marked by the arrival of workers from various parts of the country, for the works that aimed to make the river navigable.  

Since 1998, with the arrival of the Vasco da Gama bridge connecting Montijo to Lisbon, the municipality has been the target of continuous development, both residential and urban. It is also a place of religious heritage with a rich history, increasingly modernized by innovation.  

Montijo is becoming more developed, with new urbanizations emerging, and an increasing number of commercial services around.
