welcome note

Rio Maior hosts, once again, one of the biggest and most important events in national athletics, the Rio Maior Race Walking  International Grand Prix, which brings together the elite of this sport every year in our land, taking to the city center a sporting show of recognized competitiveness, were they are joined by dozens of young race walkers, perhaps among them our future Race Walking Champions.

Rio Maior is a municipality that knows how to receive vistors, that has unique conditions for the practice of sports, and that, on the 30th anniversary of this prestigious competition, waits for all of you to enjoy an afternoon dedicated to celebrating it!

Welcome to our “Alive Municipality” where, in addition to sport, you can take advantage of your visit to find some of the secrets that Rio Maior hides, such as our salt pans 30 km away from the sea or the magnificent mountain scenery of the “Serras de Aire And Candeeiros Natural Park”

Rio Maior awaits for you with open arms!


Filipe Santana Dias
Mayor of Rio Maior
