Sado Estuary Nature Reserve

Sado Estuary Nature Reserve

Covering more than 23,000 hectares (57,000 acres), the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve in Setubal was established to protect the estuary.

The inner part of the estuary is bordered by rice-fields and reedbeds, whereas the north-western limits are densely populated and the south-western parts are sheltered from the open sea by a sandbar.

The Sado estuary has been declared a reserva natural (23,971 ha), Ramsar Site and a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA), largely on account of the 300-plus species of vertebrate recorded here.

It is a special place for birdwatching, including white storks, herons and flamingos.

The fish species include white bream, grey mullet, skate, sole and the Lusitanian toadfish.

Bottle-nosed dolphins in their natural habitat can be seen and there is an important colony of them in the River Sado.

They’re often observed while crossing the river by boat, between Setubal and Troia. Cockles, whelks, clams, prawns and crabs are among the crustaceans that can be found, as well as molluscs like cuttlefish, octopus and squid.

You can put on a pair of sturdy walking boots, pack your lunch, and discover some of the hidden corners of this estuary that swoop right down to the Atlantic.

Enjoy the striking landscapes as you walk the paths or take a trip on a traditional salt galleon out on to the Sado estuary or along the Arrabida coastline.

We invite you spend some of your vacations and holidays time visiting Arrábida Hills.

We invite you to visit Setubal and to visit  Portugal

José Mourinho HometownSetubal honours “The Special One”.

Former -Real Madrid (now on Chelsea ) coach Jose Mourinho , who completed the 50th birthday in January 26th , is to get a street or an avenue in his Hometown Setubal named after him in honour of his Fantastic and Unique sporting achievements.

José Mourinho’s hometown, Setúbal city , wants to pay a tribute to the former Real Madrid manager and coach, by naming a street after him to coincide with his 50th birthday.

The exact street or avenue has not yet been chosen but the town hall’s general assembly voted unanimously to approve the naming.

The people at Setúbal and all the Portuguese in Portugal and all around the world, have no doubt that Mourinho deserves a statue in his town because he is the who makes it known worldwide Setubal. Let us wait to see if such exist.

Besides this possible honour, the town is also putting on an exhibition about the life of its most famous son. It is due to open on 23rd March at the Galeria Municipal 11 on Avenida Luísa Todi, with the coach expected to attend the inauguration.

One of the main attractions at the exhibition will be replicas of the main trophies win by Mou during his career. Also on display will be items of clothing worn by the coach on the touch-line, including the coat he had on when Porto famously defeated Manchester United in the 2003-04 

round of 16.

The Setubal town hall said it had made the decision because of Mourinho’s “extraordinary role in international sport”, but Portugal Dream Coast think and bet ,many years ago he would revolutionize the Football as a Sport, with a  new way and approach to prepare the teams, re-structuring of Clubs and Teams , methodology to train, and some other aspects. We continue thinking José Mourinho will be the Best Coach in the World ever (today he his considered the third).

He is, in all fairness, one of the coaches in the world with the most prestige and qualification.

Mourinho, the self-styled “Special One“, is undoubtedly; the most successful ever Portuguese coach, and we could say with no doubts change the Football in many aspects.

He  celebrate wins  league titles in Four different Countries with Porto (2), Chelsea (2) , Inter (2)  and Real Madrid (1), and has led  Two teams (FCPorto and Internazionale de Milano)  to Two Champions League trophies, 1 UEFA Cup, Cup and Supercup of Portugal, Spain, Italy and England Cups!!!

About the region

About the region

The region of Setubal in Portugal lies just beneath Lisbon and on the River Sado, north of the Alentejo and Algarve.

The city of Setubal is one of the oldest cities of Portugal – a flourishing Roman community used to exist in the Tróia area.

As the capital has grown over the years Setubal has become wealthier and more urbanised, becoming a luxury tourist destination with its  resorts and offer in terms of activities.

The region of Setubal in Portugal doesn’t have the large crowds of the Algarve, and offers beautiful blue and green scenery in terms of beaches and nature, perfect weather and the tastiest seafood in the country, making the perfect destination for some quiet family holidays, romantic breaks or adventure travel.

The Setubal district has several locations north, east, west and south of the Setubal Bay, each with different characteristics.

You can discover here each one of them:

Diversity, difference, and surprise are just three of the forms for us to highlight all the possibilities of an area which fuses golf, innumerable opportunities for conferences and meetings, hundreds of gastronomic suggestions, dozens of wines from cellars with a long history, for protected areas, a vast heritage all near to the capital of the country and an international airport with ease of accessibility.

Travel here and let yourself emerge in the ocean of tranquility that the region of Setubal offers you.

We guarantee that you’ll never think of travel holidays the same way. Once you go, you’ll know.
