    Favorite thing: We picked up a tourist map from the tourist office in the center of town and proceeded to get lost trying to find Igreja de Santa Maria da Graca. Yes it IS marked clearly on the map, but the map does not mention that all the streets are NOT marked on the map. But getting lost did lead us to some much needed gift shopping and eventually we did stumble across the church.
    No photos of the interior, sorry, there was a serious religious service and even though there were a few people taking photos I did not feel it was proper. So that said, Zohara stayed inside to watch will I took some photos outside. You can see in one of the photos a couple of beggers at the entrance, this is very common in Portugal and you will find them in front of almost EVERY church, sometimes one or two, sometimes dozens.

    standing tall

    Favorite thing: It is kind of inspiring that this cross stands tall amidst a not so picturesque part of town and manages to stay intact, while the rest of the area is in shambles and everything is graffitied upon. Kids even come here to skateboard, jumping off of the cross. It has taken a severe beating like noneother.

    Favorite thing: visit at the evening the promenad of setubal.
    at the summer there is a party on the street and
    there is funny things to see and doo (autoscooter ...)
    Also nearly is the castle of palmela, form there you got a nice look to the town.
    To the direction of beach 'figuerinha' you can drive up to a moutain and from there you got a beautyfull look to the ocean and cost of setubal.

    Fondest memory: market of fishing and fruits is a very popular
    u can buy here cheaper than in supermarket
    i like the atmosphere there and i think for anyone who visit
    setubal must be gone there.
    i like an beach nearly setubal 'figuerinha' there is now many peoples there but it´s not so
    unintersseting, cause is more portugues families there than tourists. If you drive around Barreiro (city below Lisboa) there gives little Bay what got bigger waves.
