A grave situation

Cacém Freguesia Assembly has unanimously approved an urgent project to expand Cacém cemetery. Almost 10 years after its inauguration, the cemetery remains unfinished and is at risk of reaching its maximum capacity. A spokesman from the Junta de Freguesia also pointed out that “the cemetery isn’t totally walled in, so animals can enter and disturb graves.” João Lacerda Tavares, speaking on behalf of Sintra Câmara, has declared that “the Cacém cemetery situation is urgent and the completion of the wall has been agreed.”
