    Tour’s Program

    A beautiful and well preserved beach just 20 Km south from Lisbon. The natural lagoon is ideal for windsurfing, canoeing or just walking around. A child. Paradise. Sunglasses are recommended.
    The Cape Espichel is a promontory located west of Sesimbra village. The location is famous for its sanctuary complex, built extremely close to the edge of the tall cliffs, which includes a church still in use today.
    The architectonic set called the Shrine of Our Lady of Mua Stone, is undoubtedly the most important and characteristic of the county.
    The cult of Our Lady of the Cape is lost in the mists of time and is credible that prior to their worship - from the XV century -. Cape Espichel was already an important center of pilgrimage.
    From 1715, the large influx of pilgrims to Cabo forced the construction of hostels with houses and shops.
    Here, there are four major sights; the lighthouse, the Santuário de Nossa Senhora, the small Chapel of Ermida da Memória and the dinosaur footprints dated from Jurassic Era. The church was constructed by King Dom. Pedro II in 1701. The interior follows the simplistic baroque designs and most of the marble was mined from Arrábida.

    Overlooking the cliffs that outcrop on the edge of Cape Espichel, to the west of the church, is located the Chapel of Remembrance, small temple implanted precisely at the spot where tradition says that the Virgin appeared.
    Cabo Espichel is ideal for tourists who enjoy raw stunning scenery, uninhabited landscape that provides stunning views and demanding coastal walks.
    We this spot we can have a unique view over the Atlantic Ocean
    A road trip through the starkly beautiful Serra da Arrábida is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day out of Lisbon. The wild, craggy mountain range rises 500 meters over the bay of Setúbal, and encompasses the protected Parque Natural da Arrábida. Blanketed with verdant woodland and scrub, this stunning landscape is home to a fascinating variety of flora and fauna, and it's possible to park the car and follow a number of signed nature trails. For the most dramatic views, follow the Estrada de Escarpa (N379-1), a narrow winding coastal road that snakes past Sesimbra all the way to Cabo Espichel, a precipitous headland topped by a lighthouse.
