Jose Maria de Fonseca

Jose Maria da Fonseca is one of Portugal's largest and most prestigious wine companies, begun in 1834 and run with undiminished passion since that date by the same family. The winery is in the charming village of Vila Nogueira de Azeitao, where visitors are welcome to tour the museum and cellars where many of Fonseca's wines are aged, including Periquita, Portugal oldest red wine. Another must-see is the Setubal Moscatel cellar, in which wines as old as the company itself slumber in their hallowed and tranquil vault. These Moscatels belong to the private collection of the Soares Franco family, of whom the sixth generation now heads the company. The tour ends with a wine tasting. At the Wine Shop you may buy that special wine or gourmet regional product for a friend.Tours occurs everyday from 10.00am to 12.00, and from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.

José Maria da Fonseca is the winery single handily responsible for developing the wonderful dessert wine called Moscatel de Setúbal, it ranges from consistency of a Sauternes to a thickened likeliness to Pedro Ximenez Sherry. We made a reservation for their premium tasting and tour. We were greeted at the winery by our knowledgeable guide, who went o we the history of this almost 200 years old family winery at their museum/memorabilia room. And then we took a tour visiting the facilities which is a throw back in time, very relaxed and fun. Last but not the least, we had the tasting with five wines and a local dessert cake. They were so friendly, we were offered to try a blend of super premium wine using vintages of 1900, 1944, and 1966. You will not leave the winery without purchasing a few bottles, they are that good!

Arrabida Sea Ventures

The name of this company is the best possible description of our first year of college. We left Lisbon to study engineering in Setubal, but half-way we came upon this wonderful mountain, its Beaches and natural charms, so that, engineering had to wait. About us… Well, we are simply in love with this wonder of nature, so we live here, and we do not sleep rested without showing it to you.

Arrabida Natural Park

Reviewed By Marcos C

At the beginning of the Portinho da Arrábida, considered one of the best Beaches in Europe. Not as fancy or expensive as the one next to it, but definitely more real, a restaurant with the balcony over the sea where you can see the transparent and translucent blue waters and the fishes waiting for a bit of bread to eat. The staff is very friendly with fishing know how and the fish is fresh and rich. Try the desert based on a Portuguese recipe of "Arroz doce" but with a fresh touch. A perfect example of Portuguese Seafood restaurant on the beach.

Troia Beach

Reviewed By Barbara S - San Diego, California

The Troia Beach is especially suited for families with small children because it is protected from the usually high waves of the other Beaches in the area. There is a café/restaurant with outside showers. Parking right next to the beach can be a problem but there is ample parking in park houses nearby. From the beach there is also a walk way to Troia Marina with shops and restaurants.

Bacalhoa Palace and Estate

Reviewed By Anemari O

What a surprise this wine tasting experience turned out to be. Not only are the staff super friendly but the grounds are in a magnificent setting. The tour gives you a historical insight about the beginnings the wine. If you think that you will get a bouring visit of wine and wine barrels you will be presently surprised. The tour start in Africa and ends in Italy with a wide variety of African arts, amazing portugese tiles dating back hundreds of years and finishing off with typical portugese vintage and set deco furniture. Entry fee is rediculously low and real value for money. A place to visit even if you are not interested in wine or wine tasting.

Quinta do Alcube

Reviewed By jcwbesq - Minneapolis, Minnesota

We took a small, professional, day tour that stopped at this lovely, small, family owned winery. While not what 'experienced' vineyard visitors might expect, it is a delightful little place. While not what 'worldly' wine connoisseur might describe, the wines are amazingly well awarded and in fact extremely inexpensive. So inexpensive in fact purchasing and consuming their best wines may be the sharpest wine investment you could make (with your spouse, friends and drinking guests anyway). Highly recommended by locals, it is well worth a stop, even if travel and the site time takes a morning or afternoon.

Mercado do Livramento

Reviewed By S O - Canton of Zurich, Switzerland

This is a beautiful place.
Worth to visit just because of the architecture and the nice tiles mosaic.
The best are the stands and the people interacting in selling / buying products in a very lively atmosphere.
Take a seat in one of the bars and observe while enjoying a drink!
Grouped in sectors perfumes and colors will vary.
Fruits & vegetables in numerous colors and sizes.
Fish and sea food so attractive that is difficult to decide what to buy for lunch.
Butchers are set at the sides and will increase your difficulty to decide your next menu!
Bakers with various type of breads and florist complete the core of the stands present on site.
Only open in the morning, secure you are not hungry when you enter and that you have organized a lunch / dinner place for after the visit.
Inspiring!

It is a little difficult beach to find. You have to ask to locals and have to walh in dome difficut trails but is considered one of the most beautiful Beaches of Portugal. The turquoise waters, the isolated pkace preserve its beaury ( not in summer time). By boat id much easier to find it.
