Full description
Leave Lisbon and experience something different in regional Portugal. To become better acquainted with an exuberant variety of fish caught in the Atlantic, as well as cheese and wine from the Alentejo region, a visit to Setúbal is essential. The city is located at the edge of the ocean, and is also surrounded by a beautiful bay where a colony of dolphins lives. You will also discover the estuary of the Sado River, which is a refuge of a rich variety of birds. During your visit to the market, you will become familiar with this beautiful region and can also enjoy a lunch of grilled fish in a local restaurant. Later on, and in a beautiful belvedere overlooking the ocean with breathtaking views, your host will invite you to have a coffee and visit an old military fort of the 17th century to learn of its history. You will see the fishing port as well as the bay whilst learning about the Sado dolphins in a very unique location. Throughout your experience you will also visit the estuary, an old tide mill, and a bird-watching site.

Our guide, Henrique was extremely knowledgeable about Portuguese history and we had a lot of fun at the market, the castle, and the fort. We appreciated that there were stops to rest such as for lunch, coffee, and drinks.
