The municipality of Odivelas, one of Portugal's newest municipalities, is made up of an extensive floodplain and hills, which are separated from each other by valleys.
With a deeply rural past and characterized by a dispersed concentration of housing, it is a territory with a population density around 49 times higher than that of mainland Portugal and six times higher than the average for the Lisbon metropolitan area.
It is an eminently urban municipality, despite the fact that two of its parishes (Caneças and Famões) have rural traits, whose occupation movement emerged more expressively from the 1950s onwards.
Visiting Odivelas is also an opportunity to see monuments, churches, windmills, aqueducts and fountains.
