Dotted by idyllic beaches and secret coves next door to Setúbal, the Parque Natural da Arrábida represents a peaceful, natural and protected encounter between land and sea.
The Parque Natural da Arrábida is one of the most beautiful places you can visit during your stay in Lisbon.
Dotted by idyllic beaches and secret coves and just two steps from Setúbal, a fishing town where the grill always smells of the freshest fish, the Parque Natural da Arrábida represents a peaceful, natural and protected encounter between land and sea. If you explore the various roads, you’ll find forts, museums, convents, hermitages, retreats, palaces and unforgettable beaches.
But to venture further along trails, you’ll need to book a visit with the park services, as they are not open to the public.
The Mediterranean vegetation and wildlife consisting of hundreds of species of butterflies, birds and mammals show the efforts made to protect this area. Put on a pair of comfortable shoes, don’t forget your bathing costume and explore the magic of these unique hills, just a few kilometres from Lisbon.
