“Troia (with ferry from Setubal). Endless white sand. For Troia you can take the ferry as a pedestrian and walk. For Comporta you need to bring your car, which is quite expensive (around € 50 return)”

“One of the best beaches in the Lisbon Region. Protected by the imposing Serra da Arrábida (Arrábida Mountain)s, Galapos Beach is a paradise on earth, with a beautiful blue and calm sea, and a beach with golden sand or too white. The crystal clear waters allow observing the bottom of the sea, which makes this beach an ideal place for diving or spearfishing”

“500 years of history - from the Portuguese Royal family till nowadays. An incredible place to be known! The Quinta da Bacalhôa estate, formerly belonging to the Portuguese royal family, dates back to the first half of the XV Century, and is considered to be the most beautiful Portuguese estate from this era still in existence today. Situated in Azeitão, the estate and the famous Palácio da Bacalhôa together constitute an artistic monument of the greatest relevance to the country. In the XIV Century, the property, used then as a country leisure estate, belonged to João, Prince of Portugal who was the son of King João I. It was inherited by his daughter, Lady Brites, who was married to the second Duke of Viseu and who was also mother to King Manuel I. The buildings are still in existence today, as are the walls with domed turrets and the large irrigation tank, all built by order of Lady Brites. Quinta da Bacalhôa would come to be sold in 1528 to Dom Brás de Albuquerque, eldest son of Dom Afonso de Albuquerque. The new owner not only enriched the buildings with beautiful tiles, but had a harmonious garden house built beside the lake, in addition to two sturdy pavilions along the lateral walls. Towards the end of the XVI Century, this estate formed part of the inheritance belonging to Dom Jerónimo Teles Barreto, descendant of Afonso de Albuquerque. All of this was eventually inherited by his sister, Lady Maria Mendonça de Albuquerque, who was married to Dom Jerónimo Manuel, nicknamed "Bacalhau" (Codfish). It is highly likely that "Bacalhôa", by which the old Vila Fresca estate in Azeitão became known, originated from the fact that the wife of Dom Jerónimo Manuel was referred to by this name, the female form of "Codfish". This estate was established as one of the artistic treasures of Portugal. In 1936, the Bacalhôa Palace was bought and restored by Orlena Scoville, a North American. In the 1970's her grandson set about transforming the property into one of the largest producers of wine in Portugal. It was classified a National Monument in 23th June of 1910.

“Ok, its not easy to get to, but you will not regret this full day trip. Particularly if its warm and summery. Take the bus to Setúbal from Gare do Oriente (2 per hour) (Metro: Oriente). This should take about 50 minutes. From Setúbal bus station, take a short walk to the Tróia Ferry terminal along the river. Catch the Catamaran to Tróia and spend the day spotting dolphins and exploring the beaches on the ocean-side of the peninsula.”
