"Saloios" are gone
When, in 1963, I moved to Lisbon, Loures was a village almost 10 miles away, where we rarely went, and usually just passing by.
With the disordered growth of Lisboa, Loures became a peripheral city, in practice almost a neighborhood at the edge of the city. Some commercial and service activities were transferred to the area, and Loures is today a city alive and with an urban image.
From the tourist point of view we can say that Lisbon is just there, Sintra nearby, Mafra not far...
