Setúbal

The serra da Arrábida is one of the most visited sites in Setúbal. Is embedded in the Natural Park of Serra da Arrábida with unparalleled views over the Atlantic Ocean. In Sierra there are still evidence of Roman occupation and its importance in landscape diversity in terms of Botany and zoology. One of the best views of Setúbal is from the viewpoint of the Castle or Fort of São Filipe. The Troia peninsula is directly across the Sado. You can go there to ferry. The trip is beautiful to do and go to the beaches of the peninsula is an unforgettable experience. In Setúbal, the beaches are also very needed. Some of the most sought after are the Portinho da Arrábida, Galapos Beach and the Praia da Figueirinha beach. The religious heritage of Setúbal is very rich, as demonstrated by the churches of good time or Announced. Two of the sites that deserve a longer visit are museums: the Museum Sebastião da Gama and the Museum of archaeology and Ethnography of the Setúbal district, to learn more of regional history. In Setúbal are numerous references to Luísa Todi, born on this earth, which was considered the mezzo-soprano most famous Portuguese of all time. One of the biggest local avenues has its name and is the shopping and big city excitement. Fish make the greatest gastronomic specialties setubalense and there is a great diversity of restaurants, where there is a large choice of fish, especially grilled. The cuttlefish fried or grilled cuttlefish with ink and with boiled potatoes to accompany, are among the most requested dishes by visitors of Setúbal. Azeitão cheese and moscatel de Setúbal are other local products to try. The House of Bocage houses pieces of art, books and documents depicting the life and work of the famous Portuguese poet Manuel Maria Barbosa du Bocage, born in Setúbal in 1765.
