Who we are?

A Associação Comunidade Islâmica da Tapada das Mercês e Mem-Martins (ACITMMM) was created by people from various countries and cultures, based on the principle that a good human being should speak, think and do good to others, All the good that a person wants for himself should desire others regardless of their origin , religion, ethnicity or gender. 

In 2007, a group of residents of Tapada das Mercês realized that there were several deficiencies in the place they inhabited and many projects they could develop together to meet the community's wishes. They founded ACITMMM with the aim of facilitating the acquisition of skills that would improve the integration of immigrants in Portuguese society and, at the same time, promote knowledge and appreciation of the cultures of their countries. Extending understanding of Islamic culture and religion, contributing to a pluralistic and peaceful society, is another specific objective of the Association.

Over time, and realizing that its issues affected not only the immigrant community but all residents of Tapada das Mercês, ACITMMM extended its responses to all residents. Soon the Association will begin the construction of the Islamic Community Center of Tapada das Mercês, destined for all, regardless of religion and ethnic or other affiliation.


ACITMMM is an I.P.S.S. and an Immigrant Association recognized by A.C.M. In 2013 the association was awarded the Silverid Awards by the European Parliament. 

Religion and Islamic Culture

In 2007, the Muslim residents of Tapada das Mercês lacked a space of prayer. They joined together to meet this need, and on August 3 of that year they inaugurated what would become the first pillar of the Islamic Community: the Mosque of Tapada das Mercês. The Mosque works to this day in temporary facilities, while ACITMMM makes every effort to build a more dignified place of prayer. The new building of the Mosque of Tapada das Mercês will soon be built, together with the Community Center, with whom it will share the location but where it will operate autonomously. At the same time, ACITMMM is dedicated to the dissemination of Islamic culture to the general public. Among other activities, it is planned to create a library where everyone will have access to more knowledge about Islam. For more information on worship, ceremonies, Madrassa and quarterly meetings with the local Mosques, contact us.

Tapada das Mercês

Cultural pluralism in the Municipality of Sintra Located in the municipality of Sintra, Tapada das Mercês is a relatively new locality, home to almost 20,000 people of at least 27 different nationalities and with a young age structure. About half of the foreigners living in Tapada das Mercês are from the PALOP countries. Others come from Brazil, from Eastern Europe, and also from African countries such as Guinea Conakry and Senegal. It is also important to emphasize the importance of Portuguese residents descendants of people from other countries. A significant part of the inhabitants has dual nationality. There are also many multicultural households. Apart from geographical and cultural diversity, religious diversity also characterizes Tapada das Mercês. An important part of the residents are Muslims, living side by side and peacefully with people of other religions, such as Catholics, Orthodox and Hindus. This diversity marks the daily life of Tapada das Mercês, distinguishes its urban experience and is an important resource for promoting the quality of life of the place. The greatest difficulties experienced by the immigrants living in Tapada das Mercês are the Portuguese language, access to documentation on citizenship and integration in the primary segment of the labor market (less precarious, more qualified). Tapada das Mercês, which grew exponentially between 1990 and 2009, now has a rich set of endogenous organizations that cooperate with each other and share the objective of serving the local population and promoting sustainable development.
