Property Description

A unique opportunity to acquire an extraordinary property with almost 8ha of land, old olive trees and cork oaks. There are also ruins of a stone house for reconstruction or renovation and the possibility of getting planning permission to build a new house and a section of land which runs along the banks of a river with native vegetation and trees.

Here, the historical legacy of the region is evident, signs of human occupation can be traced back at least 8,000 years. In fact, the unmistakable remnants of Roman engineering and of the presence of the Moors are clearly visible, be that in the etymology of place-names like Mouriscas or in the unique techniques for water management and the tending of vegetable and flower gardens bequeathed to the region by its ancient occupiers. Later, in the 18th and 19th century, water mills and olive presses were powered by the strong river flow but became redundant in the middle of last century and have since been abandoned.

This ancient legacy proves the importance of the region throughout history: its wealth lay in the production of olive oil and figs and its proximity to the port of Abrantes was indeed crucial, as were the canals that made the river Tagus navigable all year round.
