The Setúbal Wine Route comprises the municipalities of Palmela, Setúbal, Montijo, Alcácer do Sal and Grândola. Its headquarters, the Wine Route House is located in the Largo de S. João in Palmela.
The six paths of the route go through the region and guide the visitors to the most traditional wineries in Setúbal. The first path goes through "Terras de Santiago" (the Lands of Santiago), from the Palmela Castle up to the Chapel of S. Gonçalo, in a journey rich in history, heritage and craftsmanship. The second path takes us "Por Terras da Arrábida" (Through the Lands of Arrábida), where nature and art are combined with wine houses that represent the region. In the third path, "Terras Verdes" (Green Lands), between Palmela and Fernando Pó, you will find the region's golf courses and some of its best wineries. The fourth path, "Por Terras de Colonos, Ferroviários e Antigas Devoções" (Through the Land of the Settlers, Railway People and Ancient Devotions) will take you through churches, shrines and chapels up to Pegões, home to known wines of the region. Close by is the fifth path, dedicated to nature and especially to the local salt beds. Lastly, the sun and the sea meet in the sixth path, which departs from Setúbal towards Comporta, taking you "Por Terras da Baía dos Golfinhos" (Through the Lands of Dolphin Bay), the name given to this last path of the Setúbal Wine Route.
The striking landscape and cultural diversity result in a very diverse gastronomy, a true sanctuary of knowledge and flavours, where the relationship with the sea is expressed everywhere. In Setúbal one can taste the finest fish and seafood dishes in Portugal. Baked fish, fish stew, fried cuttlefish, eel stew or oysters are some of the local specialities.
