SetÃºbal, one of Portugal's oldest cities, is renowned for producing the most delicious muscadel wine in the world. SetÃºbal is also the capital of Portugal's sardine industry and has been a fish-salting centre since the 1st century. White mounds of sea salt drying in the sun are a familiar part of the local landscape, while the city sits nearby the Nature Park of ArrÃ¡bida. The park offers unspoilt nature and beautiful beaches, with lucky visitors potentially spotting the dolphin colony which inhabits the Sado River.
