Full description
This Full-Day tour is perfect if you want to discover the genuine Portuguese country and seaside just one hour outside the metropolitan city of Lisbon. After the pick-up at your hotel in the morning, our guide will drive you to the town of Palmela just 50 minutes away from Lisbon where the adventure will begin. The 12th century castle of Palmela preserves the medieval atmosphere of the brave soldiers that once defended the Portuguese coast offering astonishing views over the city of Setúbal and its bay. The tour will continue along the Portuguese countryside until you’ll reach the town of Azeitão where the art of winemaking awaits you in the wine cellars of José Maria da Fonseca. Famous for their Moscatel Wine production they’re also very proud of the first bottled red wine in Portugal. After the visit and the wine tasting you’ll be more than ready to drive to the city of Setúbal and after a short walk in the town centre try the fresh catch of the day in one of the many fish restaurants overlooking the harbor.

After lunch it’s time to explore the marvelous scenery of the Nature Park of Arrábida. Home to unique species of fauna and flora it also provides incredible views over the Atlantic Ocean in a setting worth of 1.000 pictures… At the end of this relaxing panoramic tour of the park, our guide will take you to the Cape Espichel home to the Sanctuary with the same name and where you can admire the impressive cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean. At the end of the day you will still have time to have a look at the 12th century castle of Sesimbra and the nearby fishing village with the same name, maybe for a cup of coffee admiring the waves of the Atlantic before returning back to Lisbon.
