Do you like to know where your food comes from and how it is made? Well then this is the experience for you! Come explore with me one of the largest, bustling traditional food and fish markets in the greater Lisbon area, enjoy a lunch of some of the region’s specialty fish and seafood from the coast, visit a beautiful hilltop castle and tour and taste one of the region’s known wineries.
Start your morning munching at the market where you’ll learn about the classic ingredients, meat and fish in Portuguese cuisine and their seasonality. We’ll select a couple of deliciously sweet regional pastries from one of the local vendors to enjoy with a traditional Portuguese café. When available, other small tastings may be included.
Explore a beautiful medieval hilltop castle, whose historical ruins hold numerous layers from different settlements built on it over the centuries. There are plenty of towers and lookout points to get some fabulous views of the valley out to the ocean. The inside of the castle is now home to a historical hotel, that also is beautiful to see. Afterwards, we’ll drive back down through the picturesque cobblestone streets of the castle’s historical village.
Enjoy a market-fresh grilled fish and seafood lunch, nearby the very coastline where your food was caught. You’ll get to try the region’s specialty seafood dish choco frito– fried cuttlefish, along with some simple and delicious grilled fish and perhaps some steamed local clams when in season. Wash it all down with the region’s refreshingly effervescent white wine.
Visit one of Portugal’s most renowned wineries and take a historical tour of their original estate. We’ll finish with a tasting of 3 wines- a white, a red and a Moscatel from the producer’s current selection.
A day to celebrate what Portugal’s Setúbal Peninsula has to offer!
