Trancão river mouth

The Trancão (formerly called the River of Sacavém) is a small Portuguese River (approximately 29 km) of the District of Lisbon.
The Trancão has its source in the village of Póvoa da Galega, parish of Milharado (municipality of Mafra), after crossing the town of Venda Pinheiro, from west to east, to enter the municipality of Loures parish of Bucelas.
This turned its course to the south, followed later by São Julião do Tojal to the border with the parishes of São João da Talha and Unhos.
From that point, is the natural boundary between the rest of the eastern parishes of the county, to reach its mouth in Sacavém: Unhos separates, on the south bank of the river, in São João da Talha, Bobadela and at its northern margin , near the mouth in Sacavém, separates the territory of the nearby city of Bobadela.
The Trancão tax is still in Bucelas, the stream of Romeiros, and is on the border with São João da Talha and Unhos, the stream of Póvoa (or Frielas), a water course from the union in Frielas, two other flúmens: Loures of the river and stream of Odivelas. Already in Sacavém receives the tributary streams like the Mocho and the Prior Velho.

The very Trancão is, itself, a tributary of the Tagus, coming off on your debouch estuary in the Mar da Palha, in front of Samouco in Alcochete.
