Setúbal District

Welcome to Setúbal District

The district of Setúbal is a great base for your holiday in the Lisbon region, where the beauty of the Tagus and Sado estuaries can be enjoyed to the full. Boasting the stunning scenery of the Arrábida mountain range and its surrounding vineyards, these estuaries are home to a rich diversity of water birds and to the Sado’s rare, bottlenose dolphins. Situated 20 miles (32 kilometres) south west of Lisbon, the capital city of Setúbal is located within easy reach of the most picturesque towns in the district such as Palmela, Sesimbra, Alcácer do Sal and Grândola. Setúbal used to be a bustling fishing port during Roman occupation and continued to prosper greatly after the conquest of the Moors in 1217 and the establishment of the Order of Santiago in the district. The town became an important economic centre, with thriving ceramics and fishing industries and a popular retreat for aristocrats in the 15th Century.
