A popular touring destination 25 miles (40km) south of Lisbon is
Set??bal, one of Portugal's oldest cities, renowned for producing
the most delicious muscadel wine in the world. The city is also the
centre of Portugal's sardine industry and has been a fish-salting
centre since the 1st century. White mounds of sea salt drying in
the sun are a familiar part of the local landscape. There are some
outstanding beaches near the city and some pretty countryside
dotted with orange groves, orchards and vineyards.
