What to Expect

The Blue coast is a place brimming with possibilities ranging from the art of Portuguese tiles to the frolicking Dolphins in the Sado estuary, from the baroque churches of Setubal to the peculiar flora of the Arrabida Mountain region.

With landmarks such as the 16th-century Arrabida Convent, in the heart of the Arrabida Natural Park, the Cabo Espichel, a cape on the coast of Sesimbra, or the Oceanographic Museum, housed in the 17th-century Forte da Arrábida,there is plenty to see.

In the Blue Coast, culture and nature merge in a perfect symbiosis that awaits for you. Welcome to the authentic essence of the Blue Coast.

Itinerary

MorningPalmela

This charming small town lies at the heart of one of Portugal’s most prosperous wine-growing regions, reflected in its lively local annual festivities, the “Festa da Vindimas” (Grape Harvest Festival) that take place in September, drawing everyone onto its cobbled streets.

The village is dominated by a 12th-century castle that was captured from the Moors and from then on expanded by successive kings, where the Monastery and Church of Sant’Iago were built in the 15th-century. The Monastery was transformed into one of Portugal’s most desirable “pousadas” while the castle remains a solid example of the fine military architecture of the time. At an altitude of 1200 meters at the edge of the Arrábida mountain range, its views range from Lisbon to the north to the Sado estuary to the south.

MorningAzeitão

Azeitão, named so because of the extended areas of olive trees growing in the region in Moorish times, was a particularly trendy leisure spot for the Portuguese royal court from the 14th-century on.
The striking central area of Vila Nogueira in Azeitão, Rossio, is where all the noteworthy monuments are and where you can enjoy the renowned “Tortas de Azeitão”, the typical confectionary pastry of the region.

MorningSetúbal

Located on the bank of the Sado River estuary, the lively port town of Setubal is Portugal’s third-largest port and one of its oldest cities and is an example of the perfect blend of medieval and modern. It is home of the Monastery of Jesus, with a church built in the 15th and 16th-centuries that represents one of the first buildings in the Manueline style, the Portuguese version of late Gothic. With an ancient and rich fishing history, it is famous for its fresh fish and seafood dishes, especially the fried cuttlefish, “choco frito”, the Portuguese version of fish and chips.

Discover its Roman ruins, soak up the sun in its golden sunny beached, stroll among its old cobbled streets and charming squares, and cruise on the marshy wetlands of the Sado estuary for a dolphin-spotting trip.

AfternoonSerra da Arrábida

Dominating the Arrabida Natural Park is the Serra da Arrabida, a 500-meter-high mountain range covered with wild Mediterranean-like vegetation and steep cliffs overseeing the sea. Take a scenic drive through the Park’s winding roads, stopping on its lay-bys so as to take in the dramatic coastal views of its green-blue water beaches. Overlooking the beaches is the Nossa Senhora da Arrabida Convent, a former monastery established in the 16th-century. Finally, visit the ruins of an ancient Roman fish salting factory.

AfternoonSesimbra

Sesimbra is a lively resort town with a vast fishing history and famed for its freshly cooked seafood and pristine crystal-clear beaches accompanied by the backdrop of the lush hills of the Serra da Arrabida. Drive across the golden coastline of Portinho da Arrábida that extends around the Sesimbra bay through to Cabo Espichel.

The Cabo Espichel is a dramatic and windswept headland full of raw, natural beauty. Sitting atop the mighty cliffs is one of Portugal’s most powerful lighthouses, along with several exposed dinosaur fossil trackways in some of the now tilted Jurassic strata. Local superstition interpreted these as the path taken by the Holy Virgin when riding a giant mule from the ocean and up the cliffs, which ensued in the construction of a church at the site that includes pilgrim’s accommodation.

A few kilometers from Cabo Espichel is the Castle of Sesimbra, known as Castle of the Moors, dating from the 8th through 12th-century. The castle and battlement, positioned on a hilltop, offer magnificent panoramic views over the bay and surrounding hills of Serra da Arrabida.
