Arrábida & Sesimbra (Wine Tour)

There are not enough words to describe yet another of our country’s treasures. But, let's take it one step at a time, so that you know what’s in store: first we’ll cross the 25th of April Bridge heading toward the south shore of the Tagus River. Don’t forget to look to your right, where you’ll see the mouth of Portugal’s largest river, and to the left, where you’ll have a breathtaking view of Lisbon. We’ll then head towards the Castle of Sesimbra, overlooking the fishing village with its predominantly white tones. You’ll then be captivated by the Arrábida Mountain, a unique nature reserve, and the view of the Tróia peninsula. In Azeitão, we’ll visit the cellars, where you’ll get the opportunity to taste the wines of the region. We’ll also visit the factory where handmade tiles are crafted.
