Picheleira is not a new built area but already existed at the times of “antiga Curraleira”. However today it is situated in the middle of the USER intervention territory.

In the old days, “antiga Curraleira” and “Picheleira” were  foes to each other and people spoke bad about each other. The rehousing program in the 90s was not considering these former relations and it took a while or people to get along. The conflicting situation promoted the non-identification with the new place of living that still challenges the USER territory.
