On Portugal's western coast, not far from Lisbon, you’ll find the rural region of Setubal. Its location at the mouth of the Sado River made Setubal one of Portugal’s most important ports and today it continues to delight with its high-quality food products, not least its fresh, crisp sea salt. Explore the area’s scenery while strolling through the tranquil Sado Estuary Nature Reserve and embark on an eco boat trip to see the local pod of dolphins that have decided to make the river their home. Enjoy the beautiful beaches, from Figueirinha and Galapos to Portinho da Arrabida, or enjoy a game of golf along the idyllic Troia Peninsula.
For your culture fix, visit the Gothic-Manueline-style Convent of Jesus, before hiking up to the Fort of Sao Filipe which offers breath-taking views over the city and the sea. Setubal holidays are ideal for a nature-filled getaway in the golden Portuguese sun that will leave you feeling rested and revived.
