Once known as a fertile and highly agricultural area, the Parish became a residential area of the city, with the services and commerce sectors playing a central role in the development of the Parish.
Yesterday agricultural, Lamaçães is now cosmopolitan and heterogeneous, inserted in the life of the city and with the capacity to offer to those who visit and that inhabit a huge variety of services. Trying to combine tradition with modernity, Lamaçães projects to become a strong pole of attraction, with a high level of social and economic dynamics and able to integrate in a harmonious way with the goals of the city and the region.
Lamaçães is located approximately 3km from the Central Avenue of Braga and is bordered by Nogueiró, Nogueira, Fraião, São Victor and with the municipality of Guimarães.
