Sintra is classified by UNESCO as Cultural Landscape Mundial Heritage but Setúbal compliments it and deserves to be visited. There are several tourism points to be visited like Sessimbra or Palmela castles, arrabida, São Filipe Fortress and much more.
Setubal is a city that has always had a close connection to the seas, and this is celebrated along the newly rejuvenated waterfront, which encompasses the colourful fishing harbour, the popular urban park and the Troia Peninsula ferry terminal. Within the charming historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys, hidden plazas, and family-owned shops, along with Portugal’s largest fish market.
The city of Setubal is situated in a region of immense beauty: to the east is the stunning Serra da Arrabida, to the north is historic Palmela, while to the south are the paradise beaches of the Troia Peninsula.
One of the most beautiful places in Portugal, only 40 min driving time from Lisbon, is the Arrabida Natural Park which is considered as one of the most amazing places in the country. Before going there, you have to first cross the most famous bridge of Portugal, a copy of the Golden Gate from San Francisco, USA, with amazing overviews towards the Christ Cross.
Our Setúbal, Palmela and Sesimbra private tour has many highlights, starting with a visit to Sesimbra’s castle, we will visit Sesimbra and it’s old Castle, built 1.000 years ago, followed by a visit to the fisherman village. After that, we will keep on crossing the Arrabida Natural Park, famous for its pristine beaches and great landscape, where 007 James Bond filmed one of his movies.
We will then head to Setubal town, and make a stop for lunch at a typical local fisherman restaurant before heading to São Filipe Fortress that offers an amazing view of Setúbal and the magnificent Tróia Peninsula. Setubal is considered one of the main fishing ports in the country.
We will then finalize with visit to Palmela, for a wine tasting session, so you can discover some of the delicious wines that bring fame to the region and conquer more fans each year.
