Aldeia de Paio Pires is a Portuguese civil parish in the municipality of Seixal. In 2001 the population of 10,937 inhabitants, living in an area of approximately 12.14 square kilometres (4.69 sq mi): its population density was about 900 people per kilometre square.
Located on the left margin of the Ribeira de Coina, Aldeia de Paio Pires was once part of Almada, and location of several farms and estates, including Quinta do Cocena (which was donated to Estêvão Lourenço by King John I), Quinta do Fernão Ferro, Quinta da Atalaia and Quinta da Palmeira (which was given in the 14th century to the Convent of Santa Maria de Belém).
One of the first references to the location is associated with the hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Anunciação, in the 14th century, during a visit members of the Order of Santiago to Almada (1564-65).
In 1758, the administrator of the hermitage was José Felix da Cunha, likely due to his close association of the Master of Paio Pires. On the 4 July 1756 conceded perpetual indulgences to the faithful who visited the hermitage during the feast days associated with Annunciation of Mary (and other feast days associated with Mary) and the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. A few years later, José II (patriarch of Lisbon) de-annexed the ecclesiastical parish from that of Nossa Senhora da Arrentela on 25 February 1797.
A part of Fernão Ferro separated to create its own parish on 11 June 1993.
