The convents of Arrábida, with their unique architecture, stand as monumental testimonies to the historical and spiritual legacy that spans eras. The Convent of Jesus, an expression of Manueline style, is adorned with tiles that form an exhibition of artworks by Portuguese painters from the 19th century.

The abundance of sun, sea, and sand in the Setúbal district not only makes it a popular tourist destination but also a region where Castelão, a native variety of Portuguese red grape, thrives. The wines are well-balanced due to the natural acidity of the grape, provided by the predominant Atlantic influence that mitigates the hot and dry Mediterranean climate on the Setúbal Peninsula.

Azeitão cheese began to be produced in the 19th century thanks to Gaspar Henriques da Paiva, a native of Beira Baixa. This farmer decided to raise sheep from his region in Azeitão to produce cheeses characteristic of the Serra da Estrela. It is a cured cheese obtained from raw sheep’s milk, with an incredibly buttery texture and a unique flavor, slightly spicy, acidified, and salty.
