The municipality of Setúbal is located on the northern bank of the Sado River estuary, approximately 40 km south of Portugal's capital, Lisbon.
This little city, situated right on the Sado River estuary about a 45 minute drive south from Lisbon, has failed in attaining a glamorous history. Because of its prime location, Setúbal was an important hub for Portugal’s fishing industry in the early twentieth century. Sardines in particular were the cheapest and most popular fish in Portugal to which numerous factories were built along the banks. Today, none of these factories are still in operation, but some of their ruins still sit on the outskirts of the city. This is why, in recent years, the government and city hall have been making an effort to fix up and beautify the area in order to rid Setúbal of its industrial reputation, while attracting more visitors
