  • Hard to miss this important landmark as it is up on the hill overlooking the Bay and the city. It is a strategic spot indeed and worth a visit.

  • It takes 5 minutes by car if staying in Satubal & worth the visit if only for the views. Shame hardly any information on the Fort.

  • Cool castle with amazing views. Great getaway for a sunset. Elegant cafe on the premises, however they only serve drinks and snacks, at least in November. Come in the morning with sun on the castle, on the afternoon castle will be in shade and city/marina is light up with golden colours.
  • Castle located high up in the mountains, which can be explored by the public for free (no admission fee). The Castle are spectacular in itself, but the view over Setubal and Atlantic Ocean is superb. Bar/restaurant is available. I would say that 30 min minimum is required to see the cattle. Cab or car is recommended, as the hill is quite steep for any one that would like to visit the castle by foot. Worth an visit!
