What not to miss

- The city itself is worth spending some time in. Visit the beautiful 16th century Monastery of Jesus which is an early exponent of Portuguese Manueline architecture.
- There are also a number of wonderful churches including the Sao Juliao Church.
If you’re here for the great outdoors, some of the best places to stay in Setúbal can be found in the green hills surrounding the town.
