Arcena is a town in the city of Alverca do Ribatejo, which belongs to the municipality of Vila Franca de Xira.
Founded by the Arabs at the end of the 9th century, beginning of the 10th century, its name derives from the toponym «Albirca» or «Alborca» which means marshy land, they occupied the region and developed it.
The Tagus was important in the development of the town, namely due to the location of three ports, at the mouth of the same number of creeks, through which people and goods were communicated.
During these three centuries, the village of Alverca saw buildings of great importance being built: in 1530, Pelourinho, in 1597, Misericórdia and Hospital with its church, in 1687 the Mother Church was rebuilt and in 1764, the Town Hall. In the 18th century there was the Convento das Carmelitas de S. Romão, the Convento Dos Capuchos de St.º António, the hermitage of Nossa Senhora do Bom Sucesso, the hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Piedade in Adarse, the hermitage of Santo António in Cumeira, the chapel of S. Clemente in Arcena, the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Praça in Proverva and three fountains. The Alverca fountain, the Carapito fountain and the Á-dos-Potes fountain.
On October 24, 1855, the Municipality of Alverca was extinguished, becoming part of Vila Franca de Xira. The following year, on October 28, 1856, Alverca was one of the pioneer towns to be served by the railways, when D. Pedro V inaugurated the first railway line from Santa Apolónia to Carregado, passing through Xabregas, Olivais, Póvoa , Alverca, Vila Franca de Xira and Castanheira.
In 1892, at Quinta da Figueira, a “Textile Factory” was inaugurated, the first large factory in Alverca, employing 74 workers, thus becoming a pioneer in the industrialization of the Municipality, with a significant increase in the population and consequently the development of the region itself.
