Arrábida Full Day Tour
As a starting point for this tour, we chose Espichel Cape. It is considered an extreme point of the peninsula of Setúbal. Dangerous cliffs that stretch out over the blue surface of the ocean are breathtaking spectacle. Here, on the edge of a high cliff in the eighteenth century was built the Temple of Our Lady of the Cape Espichel in Baroque style by the architect João Antunes.
Crossing the natural park and the Portuguese villages, we will reach the oldest fortress in the region of Setúbal, which dominates the whole bay of the Peninsula. The exact date of construction of the Castle of Sesimbra is very difficult to determine, but the oldest documents are related to the reconquest of the castle in 1165 by the first King, D. Afonso Henriques.
Before proceeding, we invite you to lunch in Setúbal, where you can enjoy fresh fish and seafood prepared in a traditional style.
