Alcanena

At the foot of the Aire and Candeeiros Mountains, an area in Portugal classified as a Natural Park, the village of Alcanena underwent considerable development in the 19th century, when several factories involved in the tanning industry were established. It was a time of prosperity that brought great wealth to this region of Portugal, and many of the fine buildings in Alcanena date from the late 19th to early 20th century.

In the environs, in an extremely fresh and green area, are the "Olhos d`Água" (water springs) - the sources of the River Alviela, one of the points that capture the water for Lisbon`s domestic water supply.
