Olivais (Portuguese pronunciation: [oliˈvajʃ]) is an urban civil parish in the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal.

It has an area of 10.66 km² and a population of 46,410 (as of 2001) giving a population density of 4,352.8 inhabitants per km².

The parish was created in 1397, probably resulting in the division of a part of Beato (to the south) and Sacavém (to the north). Between 1852 and 1886 Santa Maria dos Olivais formed a large municipality, predominantly rural, including 22 civil parishes.

In 1864 it occupied a surface of approximately 223 km² and had a population of 25,495, and of 29,491, in 1878.

Companies with head offices in Santa Maria dos Olivais and Portela Airport include TAP Portugal.[1][2]

With the 2012 Administrative Reform, the parish name was reduced from Santa Maria dos Olivais to Olivais. [3]
