Vila Franca De Xira
Located less than 20 miles from the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, Vila Franca De Xira can be found on the Tagus river's west bank. The municipality has a population of about 133,000 and belongs to the Lisbon District.
The annual bull-running events that occur during July and October have made the town famous, with the Ribatejo's salty marshlands provide the ideal environment for raising the bulls. The breeding of the elegant Lusitano horses also takes place in this area.
The bullring (Praça de Toiros) in town houses an interesting ethnographic museum. Visitors here can see a collection of typical, vividly-coloured regional bullfighter's costumes. Fabulous, more than 300 years old glazed tiles (azulejos) are part of the nearby Misericórdia church's interior, making it a worthwhile stop off.
Located just a five-minute drive from Vila Franca De Xira is the Lezíria Grande Equestrian Centre. At this facility visitors can observe demonstrations by Lusitano horses. Spectators also have the option to ride this unique type of horse. Meanwhile, the outdoor bullring of the equestrion centre presents bullfighting shows.
Renting a car is essential to fully enjoy Vila Franca De Xira and the surrounding region with its many fascinating attractions. All of the Lisbon District's sights are easily accessible by road. We recommend you book your car hire in advance online. Pre-booking a private rental vehicle will give you peace of mind that the most suitable car will be available at the time of your arrival.
