1 DRAFT law No. 336/X ELEVATION of VILLAGE of BORBA, in the MUNICIPALITY of BORBA, the CATEGORY of CITY and Exhibition grounds, the village of Borba is the seat of the municipality of Borba, belonging to the District of Evora, which covers some 1900 ha and composed of four parishes: Array (4,123 ha), Orada (5,083 ha), Rio de Moinhos (5,292 ha) and St Bartholomew (14 ha). The municipality of Borba is a Municipality in the Alentejo region, in the extreme north of the District of Évora, confronting the North and spring with the District of Portalegre and Vila Viçosa, the South with the municipalities of Alandroal and round and to the West with the municipality of Estremoz. Is located in the zone of the marbles ", because it is known this subregion of the Alentejo, which has given itself a specificity for expertise that presents the economic activity that gives the name: mining and processing of marble. From the point of view of your geographic location in the context of the urban network, the village of Borba is in a position equidistant between two regional urban centres, which are Évora, Portalegre and Badajoz (about 50 Km away each of the centres), as well as the Alqueva dam. The County presents an heterogeneous regarding the occupation of space. So, we have an area to the North of EN 4, almost entirely made up of the parish of Orada, sparsely populated, and where the predominant agricultural activity, with cereal crops, as well as the culture of the vine. A dividing strip between the EN 4 and the Sierra de Ossa, covering the parishes of St. Bartholomew, matrix, and almost all of the parish of mills River, where the predominant culture of the vine and the olive grove, an ally of legumes and crops extensive livestock rearing. In addition to these 2 we also found an important industrial activity linked to the extraction and processing of marble. A southern zone, between the CM and the limit of the municipality 1042, in the parish of Rio de Moinhos, mountainous area, virtually depopulated and dominated the forest activity, is particularly mounted area, combined with the extensive farming of cattle, which provides raw material to the important activity of dairy products.

Origin of the town of ancient origin, the name "Borba" has been cause for great speculation. Good remote origins, tradition points as justification to do so, having been found in an existing source at the Castle from the village of Borba, a large Barb (freshwater fish). However, in the course of time, the name "Barbel" would have degenerated to "Borba". Another explanation is based on the Greek word Borboros "", which means "mud at the bottom of stagnant water". Most of the news until we reached about the origins of the village are not conclusive. Little is known of the earliest inhabitants can only make a few assumptions. Natural conditions involving the County suggests the ease of setting of human groups. The hypothesis that other inhabitants before the Celts, povoassem the "mild circular Valley", where it encloses the village of Borba, is nonetheless quite logic. Father Joaquim Anselmo (author of the only existing monograph on the County), I suggested such, so "the depth of your roots," of which you speak Jaime Cortesão, may well be attributed to the Neolithic age, according to archaeological finds. Some authors attribute the Foundation of Borba to Gallo-Celtic, around the year 974 c or c. 306 came under Roman rule, cobble and Arabic.


Creation and evolution the municipality In 1217, during the reign of d. Afonso II, is taken to the Arabs, the military order of Avis. D. Dinis assigns her Charter in 1302. The area of the municipality (circumscribed in the Charter) was well below the current limits. It lacked almost all the area corresponding to the parish of Rio de Moinhos (belongs to the municipality of Estremoz, height), however, had two small portions of the parishes of Agualva (Elvas) and Arcs (Estremoz). The Barbel was chosen as badge of the County, at the time of granting of the Charter. 3 was also King who promoted the castellated amuramento of the village. The castle had in quardrilateral and your plant construction the current system fortifications followed similar in the region. Of thick masonry, was ranked amuramento normal height, crowned by merlons Goths and wide adarve that ran the wall. The pit, shallow, disappeared with the construction of the houses that was developing on the outside. By the beginning of the 20th century. XVIII, the military Government of the province determined to involve the village by an entrenched, with moats, estacaria and covered roads, work that was only outlined and that there were still traces in 1766. The Castle, built or remodeled. XIII, keep the keep and two doors, Estremoz and the barn. Little is known of Borba, the period the granting of a Charter (reign of Dinis) and end of the reign of d. Fernando. The main cause of this gap seems to be the destruction of the registry of the Chamber, by John of Austria, when he took the Castle, during the war of restoration. Well, were tough times for the County, year of 1383-1385 crisis, the village suffered strong ruin with the passage of the English troops of the Duke of Them, which welcomed as an ally and friend, as in conquered country, by outraging fleecing and stealing the Alentejo. After the crisis, Borba is donated (with other lands Alentejo) d. Nuno Álvares Pereira. The 15TH century corresponds to major period of expansion. As happened throughout the country, with the Portuguese discoveries, Banu saw your population to thrive, in numbers and wealth. In the reign of King Manuel, in 1512, is awarded new Charter (to June 1). The Philippine domain, the war of the restoration and the Castilian troops incursions systematic, commanded by John of Austria, the Council ruined and lost population. This time is the memory of a remarkable event in our history, the hanging of the Governor of the Castle, Rodrigo da Cunha Ferreira, and two Portuguese captains of the garrison, in the summer of 1662, after the victorious army invasion of d. João da Austria. This will warrant committing the heinous act in revenge for the murder of three captains, a Sergeant and 20 soldiers of their forces, in addition to 50 wounded. The memory of the people kept the ephemeris in the locative, with the "street of the Hanged", which went after the Right Street. Not content with your reprisal, d. João da Austria sends set fire to the Town Hall and the Municipal Notary Office, losing all ancient manuscripts of the story of Borba. 4 In 1665, Borba was occupied by three regiments of infantry and cavalry, and one-third the population suffered again the terrible invasion panic, who collapsed on the field of Montes Claros, with the defeat of the armies of Philip IV. The battle of Montes Claros (June 17 1665) fought in borbense soil, marks the defeat of the Castilians in the wars of the restoration. The town and County are many elements alluding to the battle and the Commander of the Portuguese troops, the Marquis of Marialva. Signed the peace, the municipality of Borba prospered. It did it on the culture of cereals increased the area of olive groves and vineyards multiplied, firming up more in the country's ancient fame of its wines. This season, are the Source of Bicas constructions, the Town Hall and several Palaces. The beginning of the 19TH century to mark Borba, a phase of misfortunes with the first French invasion. During the Peninsular War arose in Banu a group of militiamen who featured in the defense of Évora, on 29 June 1808. Shortly after, between 1809 and 1811, the village lodged a Scottish Brigade of the anglo-Portuguese army of Beresford. Administrative reform of 1834, the sub county boundaries have changed with the annexation of the parish of Rio de Moinhos and loss of small areas of the towns of Arcos and Tyumen. In 1895, the County was phased out and attached the Vila Viçosa, however, is restored three years later, the Decree of 13 January 1898.

Natural Heritage or built, the existing heritage, in the municipality of Borba, is Rico. Small details and the beauty of the lines make the difference. In the Alentejo area of marbles, what marks the landscape are the quarries, vineyards, olive trees, orchards, chestnut and fertile land, ponds and reservoirs.

The village of Borba has been losing population, as has checked all the Alentejo, as well as the interior of the country. The evolution of the population in the municipality of Borba was characterised by some variations, reflection of the social transformations, economic, political and cultural rights occurring in the country and the region. We can identify three distinct periods that marked the demographics of the County, including: 1900 to 1930: in this period the municipality of Borba presented a positive population trend, with growth rates below 9%. At the end of this period the Council held 8,094 inhabitants, which is equivalent to a growth of 23.55% compared to 1900 (more 1,543 inhabitants). From 1930 to 1960: these two decades were marked by a population growth of about 28.87% (2,337 more inhabitants). However it was in the 30 that the highest growth rates of the population (about 19%) driven by the influx of workers from other regions of the country to work in agricultural activities during this time suffered a strong boost with the launch of the "wheat Campaign" by the New State. Unlike the previous period, the 27 fundamental factor in the genesis of as significant population growth was the migratory component essentially masculine. From 1960 to 2001: this last period represented a complete break with the trend of population growth recorded previously. The 60 was marked by a process of "emptying" the population motivated by a significant migratory flow towards the main urban centres of the country, namely industrial for the metropolitan area of Lisbon, and to Europe. This phenomenon has had very negative effects on the population structure of the County and in your growth dynamics with the output of the active population and of childbearing age. From 1970 to 2001 saw maintaining the downward trend of the population, albeit at a lower pace, underpinned by a natural and migratory growth negative. In 2001, the municipality of Borba had 7,782 people, least 472 individuals for the year previous (censitário-5.72%). We're looking for, right now, to reverse this situation, through the creation of infrastructures that we hope will make the Council attractive in terms of population, looking for it to become the largest in the region. In the next chart we will present the distribution of the population by the parishes in the municipality: Array and s. Bartolomeo, with markedly urban characteristics and Rio de Moinhos and Orada, most rural characteristics.
