Sesimbra e Arrábida Natural Park: 1 Day Tour & Wine Tasting

Sesimbra e Arrábida Natural Park: 1 Day Tour & Wine Tasting

Leave Lisbon behind and go over the bridge "Ponte 25 de Abril", known as "The Golden Gate", so called after the fall of the fascist regime in 1974 about the freedom of the Portuguese people. You will glimpse from above the Tejo estuary which constitutes a protected natural reserve and is a nursery for several species of marine fish and water birds. At low tide, you also will be able to see the locals harvesting clams. Head south along the magnificent coastline and marvel at the beaches, landscapes, and vineyards of Costa Azul Promontory National Park, which includes Sesimbra e Arrábida Natural Park. Discover the deepest lagoons in Portugal until you reach the westernmost point of Vila de Sesimbra: Cabo Espichel. On this Portuguese promontory, the bravest will be able to glimpse the vertiginous and abysmal Lagosteiros Bay. Visit the picturesque fishing village of Sesimbra, located next to a sheltered bay, conquered by our king D. Afonso Henriques in 1165, and discover its Medieval Moorish Castle. It's time for a break and to relax. Take a walk along the sea or take a break at a local bakery and taste a good Portuguese coffee. Keep heading south to Serra da Arrábida natural park, a place of infinite beauty between the mountains and the sea. Prepare to be amazed by unparalleled landscapes and take incredible photos. The current fauna includes, among others, the fox, the wild boar, the Bonelli's eagle, and the royal swift. The park is a protected area, and certain places can only be accessed with special permission, but no worries, we have passage. Enjoy a delicious lunch by the sea and taste fresh local products. Enjoy a glass of wine and delight with a magnificent fresh grilled fish, such as a beautiful Robalo, caught in our seas or try the local “Choco Frito”, a Portuguese version of “Fish&Chips”. Take a walk along the beach and enjoy nature. In summer you may want to swim in our turquoise waters, but be prepared for a vigorous swim. It's time to continue our tour and to begin our wine tasting. Have a delicious Moscatel Wine inside a Castle and enjoy a unique view over the Sado River. Visit two local own-property wineries and taste several awarded wines. Stroll through the vineyards and visit the wine factory to see the wine-making process. Explore a small wine museum with artifacts dating back to the Roman era. Travelers love visiting this unrivaled wine-producing region, which boasts some of the best wine products in Europe. Visit a local tile crafts house and complement your wine-tasting experience with some of the best local pastries and indulge in mouth-watering regional sweets. It is now time to return to Lisbon, but not without first visiting the incredible Cristo Rei monument, which is one of the most emblematic symbols of the Lisbon region, and end your day with a fantastic sunset.
