The rural tourism, Herdade do Azinhal, located in this estate borders the village of Santa Clara-a-Velha, which is the seat of the parish with the same name. It has a population of 948 residents and covers an area of 99.42 km2.

The parish was incorporated into the municipality of Odemira at the beginning of the 19th century. Historically, it belonged to the domains of the Order of Santiago de Espada, which allowed residents to build a chapel at the end of the 15th century.

The white and flowering village, the seat of the parish, developed under the shadow of the Church of Santa Clara de Assis and grew near the fertile lands of the Mira River Valley, with the mountain range as its predominant landscape.

Agriculture and livestock farming are the predominant activities in the parish, although there is also a presence of services and trade. A large part of the parish’s area is also occupied by the forest.
