three castles

setúbal, palmela & sesimbra

patrimony & nature

Setubal, set between the Sado’s river estuary, the Arrábida’s Natural Park Mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean, grew up from a typical fisherman’s harbor town into an industrial and metropolitan city. Nonetheless, its original pureness remained intact. Here one can find some of Portugal’s best fish speciality restaurants.

Palmela is a small but important village located in a great natural elevation. Its geography has attracted almost every form of civilization known in Europe since pre-historic times. From the Moorish Castle, you can see the Tejo’s Estuary, Lisboa’s Castle, Setúbal’s Castle, Sado’s Estuary, Sesimbra’s Castle and Sintra’s Palácio da Pena.

Sesimbra is magical and getting to there is like opening a treasure keeper’s box. A downhill journey through the Arrábida’s Natural Park distinct scented beauty will reveal a surprisingly stunning, never-ending, view of the bluer than blue Atlantic ocean highlighted by a discreet strip of white sandy beach.
