Altitude: 
15
Fiesta: 

Several bull running/fighting festivals are held in July and October.

The Road: 

The pedestrian path keeps along the Rio Tejo into Vila Franca de Xira. The bright yellow bull ring tells you that you have arrived. Unless you need to enter the town, keep along the path. Otherwise, yellow arrows at the bull ring will guide you into and then back out of town to rejoin...

History: 

The town's name gives a bit of evidence to the claim that it was settled first by the French followers of Portugal’s first king.
