Lisbon Day Trip: Sesimbra / Azeitão

Just south of Lisbon, across the Tagus River estuary, you’ll visit the extraordinary villages of Sesimbra and Azeitão, renown for not only for their famous fortified dessert wine, Moscatel de Setúbal, but also for their sensational seafood!

“As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.”  

Ernest Hemingway’s heavenly description in A Moveable Feast was of Paris, but it could have easily been Setúbal with their vibrant oysters, fried cuttlefish and flavorful and fat sardines! In fact, the Setúbal sardine was proclaimed one of Portugal’s 7 Gastronomic Wonders!

On this full day retreat from the bustling city of Lisbon, you’ll savor regional pastries, explore a quaint little towns, see lush farmlands and majestic mountains, and enjoy a delicious seafood lunch in the quaint village of Sesimbra. It’s the perfect opportunity to kick-back, relax and enjoy Portuguese hospitality.
