Setúbal was inhabited in ancient times by the Phoenicians, and by the Romans who settled on the south bank of the River Sado (in Tróia, opposite the present town), who called it Cetobriga, from which the name Setúbal is derived. It was the Romans who started one of the region's most traditional activities - gathering salt and preserving food in salting tanks whose remains still exist on the Tróia Peninsula. The development of Setúbal has always been linked to the seafaring activities facilitated by its location at the mouth of the River Sado, and it was already one of the country's main ports in the 14th century. Its agricultural produce is also important, some of which is mentioned in documents dating back to the 14th century, in particular grapes, wine, oranges and fish. The wines produced in the surrounding area are still famous today, especially table wines and the moscatel called Setúbal, which can be tasted in the cellars in nearby Azeitão, which also produces excellent cheeses and delicious tarts. The city was the birthplace of outstanding Portuguese cultural figures, particularly Bocage (a 19th century poet, famous for the ironic tone and social criticism that he put into everything he wrote), and Luísa Todi (an important lyric singer). The Convent of Jesus, which houses the Municipal Museum, is in the Gothic-Manueline style, and the Fort of São Filipe, now converted into a "Pousada" (country-house hotel) from which one can enjoy a fantastic view of the city, the River Sado, Tróia and the Arrábida mountain range, also deserve special mention. Around Setúbal there are nature conservation areas, in particular the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, where it is still possible to watch dolphins in the wild, and the Arrábida Natural Park, which has unique characteristics and contains species that can only be found in areas near the Mediterranean. There are also excellent beaches, especially Figueirinha, Galapos and Portinho da Arrábida (a magnificent sheltered bay), and on the other side of the River Sado, within easy reach by ferry, there is the Tróia peninsula with about 18 kms of beaches and a golf course.

The thriving port town of Setúbal lies between Sado Bay, one of the world’s most beautiful bays, and Arrábida Natural Park. Located just 50km south of Lisbon, this is an easy day trip by train. Don’t miss: * Dolphin watching in Sado Bay – Sign up with a local tour operator for a glimpse of the playful pods of bottlenose dolphins and surrounding beautiful coastal scenery. * Beautiful beaches– Catch the bus to Figueirinha (TST) or the ferry to Tróia (Atlantic Ferrys), where you’ll be wowed by crystal-clear water, soft sand and scenic green hills. * A vibrant food market– Mercado do Livramento is one of the world’s best fish markets (with excellent fruit and vegetables too). The art deco building houses some interesting tile panels from the first half of the 20th century. * Fresh fish and good wine– Feast on fried cuttlefish, a traditional Setúbal dish, and maybe after drink some Moscatel, the region’s world-famous dessert wine. How to get there: Take the FERTAGUS train from Roma Areeiro, Sete Rios or Entrecampos station in Lisbon. The journey to Setúbal is less than one hour; from here the historic city centre is a 15-minute walk.

SURROUNDINGS 13. Castelo de São Filipe Dominating the skyline high above Setúbal is the town's castle. The fort was built in 1595 on the orders of Philip II of Spain and follows a star-shaped design originally drawn up by Italian military engineer Filippo Terzi. Architect Leonardo Torriana, also from Italy, made sure everything fitted into place. Constructed during the period of Spanish rule, the defensive stronghold kept enterprising pirates and English invaders at bay. After Portuguese Reconquest, heavier more robust walls were added, as was a stone tunnel that lead to the interior. Today, it is tourists that besiege the castle, either to clamber playfully over the weathered bastions, or to stay at the pousada, an upscale inn that's made good use of the 16th-century blueprints. A small chapel lined with wonderfully detailed tiles is worth admiring. But the real draw is the inspiring panorama that takes in Setúbal, the sparkling Sado estuary, and the distant Tróia peninsula.
