The parish of Benfica covers 7% of the city’s territory but contains, in about half of its space, the “green lung” of the Portuguese capital, the Monsanto Forest Park.
Benfica began as a village of peasants of the Saloia region. With them also some religious orders settled in the territory.
In the 15th century, it was promoted to the seat of judgment of the Term of Lisbon, being granted two private judges. It was also at that time that three important Brotherhoods were settled: Our Lady of Amparo, St. Anthony and St. Sebastian.
In the 18th century there began to be a strong attraction of new wealthy classes, seduced by the landscape, which settle in farms.
In the 19th century, links with public transport appeared and the city grew exponentially.
City of Lisbon continued to grow rapidly, which was reflected in the growing urbanization of the parish. From the 1950s to the 1990s, the population tripled from 17,843 inhabitants to about 50,000 inhabitants.
In 1959 the territory is divided again and gives rise to the parish of São Domingos de Benfica.
More recently, along with the growing building, the resident population has declined, not only due to aging but also by the migration of younger inhabitants to the periphery.
