The large jewish community provided a great commercial and industrial development in Fundão.
Also the discovery of wolframite mines, and the development of the textile industry on the 17th and 18th century helped the Fundão urban growth.
Testimonies of those golden times are the many and wealthy Churches, the superb Manor houses, some of them upgraded to quality Tourist units.
