vf-xira_header

About 30 minutes from Lisbon, Vila Franca de Xira is a busy industrial and agricultural center traditionally associated to horses and bulls. Surrounded by the river Tagus, the city has a strong rural character that prevails in the image of the campino, a horse rider whose work is to take care of the bulls, and marshy lands of the Lezirias. Vila Franca de Xira, a tradition in itself that culminates in the famous Festival of the Red jacket (typical attire of the campinos)
