Abstract

No século XVI, a cidade de Lisboa sofreu uma profunda transformação que implicou, entre outros aspetos, a relocalização do seu centro político, económico e social, para a Baixa ribeirinha. Este facto motivou um conjunto de intervenções de ordenamento e racionalização do espaço urbano, que incluiu a implantação de um sistema de saneamento básico. Neste artigo, procura-se descrever a rede de saneamento básico da Baixa de Lisboa no século XVI, a partir de documentação coeva e dos dados arqueológicos coligidos nas numerosas intervenções arqueológicas realizadas nesta área urbana.

During the sixteenth century, Lisbon was deeply transformed. Among other aspects, such transformation included a new location of the political, economical and social offices from the city center to the downtown area by the Tagus River. As a consequence, there was a main reorganization and rethinking of Lisbon’s urbanism, and the arrangement of the sanitation system. The aim of this paper is to describe the sixteenth century Lisbon’s downtown sanitation network system based on the information collected from the historical written sources, as well as the results from numerous archaeological excavations
