Oliveira do Bairro ( Portuguese for: olive tree of the district) is a municipality and city in Portugal with 6250 inhabitants (as of June 30, 2011).


Celtiberians settled in the district area, today's municipality of Mamarrosa . Finds show the presence of the Romans in the present-day communities of Palhaça and Bustos . The current location is documented for the first time in a deed of donation from the year 922, under the name Ulveira . Oliveira do Bairro received its first city rights in 1514 by King Manuel I , who elevated the place to a vila (small town). In 1836 it became an independent district ( concelho ). In 2003 Oliveira do Bairro was elevated to a city ( Cidade ).
