Olhão with São Miguel hill in view.


Olhão is presently composed by four parishes but historically it had five. This was due to an administrative reorganization in 2013. The list below contains some useful genealogical information. The patron saint is also included as paroquial records sometimes use it as a synonym for the parish's name.
