Rua (Direita) do Lumiar

Mais para norte da cidade, na zona do actual Lumiar, existiriam, na Lisboa medieval, estruturas de tipo militar. Havia um acampamento, muito possivelmente ligado à torre de aviso ou farol que aí se levantava, que deu origem ao actual nome "Lumiar". É, no mínimo, curioso e possivelmente significativo que na zona ainda subsista o topónimo "Torre do Lumiar". Serviria esta torre ou almenara para observar movimentos militares a norte da cidade e avisá-la, quando os movimentos o justificassem.

 

Calçada de Carriche Rua do Lumiar [Inicio séc. XX]
Antiga Rua Direita do Lumiar; ao fundo vê-se o começo da Calçada de Carriche; à dir. abre-se a Rua da Castiça  antigo troço da Estr. da Ameixoeira. O topónimo Rua da Castiça
(1985) recorda uma figura muito estimada de uma comerciante que ali exerceu actividade durante muitos anos.

Rua Direita era a designação comum usada para a rua principal de um lugar e a Rua Direita do Lumiar já aparece mencionada em documentação do séc. XVI mas só por Edital de 08/06/1889 passa a designar-se Rua do Lumiar.
Refira-se que a freguesia do Lumiar só integrou o concelho de Lisboa a partir de 1885, por via da reforma administrativa introduzida pelo Decreto de 18 de Julho, e que o Edital municipal de 8 de Junho de 1889, que contemplou perto de 60 arruamentos, procurou organizar os novos territórios que passaram a integrar Lisboa e assim mudou topónimos com vista à sua simplificação e, também, à sua diferenciação de outros idênticos existentes noutras partes da cidade.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. of course like your web-site but you have to check
    the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling
    issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand
    I'll definitely come again again.
