Barreiro is located in the district of Setubal in Portugal, a vibrant area with a plethora of historical venues. Setubal also acts as a convenient gateway to nearby areas where you can laze around on the beaches, admire nature or explore other historic cities.
The town of Setubal itself is very charming, boasting a number of gardens and quaint little shops. Several pedestrian streets allow visitors to walk anywhere they want without having to watch out for cars.
The Cathedral Santa Maria da Graca should be on your must-see list. This 16th century church isn't only beautiful from the outside. Walking inside, visitors can marvel at exquisite tiles from the 18th century. Another church worth visiting is the Igreja de Jesus, with magnificent Gothic columns and pink stone.
Those into museums should head to the Museu de Setubal with a wide range of paintings and artefacts. A part of the museum is dedicated to Bocage, an 18th century romantic poet. Interesting items from various periods from the region can be found at the Museu de Arqueologia e Etnografia. Also, an elegant Pousada is not to be missed. This luxurious venue was once the Castelo de Seo Filipe, which was built to defend the port in 16th century.
Travelling to the nearby areas by hire car is also a good way to explore the region. The Estuario do Sado nature reserve, not far from the city, features many kinds of plants, small forests and lovely lagoons. Beach lovers can head to Portinho da Arrabida, a cove beach, and walk up the slope to enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings. We offer inexpensive car hire from Barreiro which can be conveniently booked online.
