Close to Lisbon and the Sado estuary, the Natural Park includes several mountains namely Arrábida, S. Luís, Louro, S.Francisco and Risco and also the promontory of Cape Espichel. The marine park’s area extends along 38km of the south coast of Setúbal’s peninsula, between the Arrábida Mountain and cape Espichel, from the Figuerinha beach to Foz beach. It also incorporates the European network for conservation of nature (Nature 2000).
The Arrábida Natural Park was created in 1976 and owes its name to the main geomorphological unit of the whole area, designated as Arrábida range. Today it comprises 17.000 hectares of which 5.000 are marine.

The Lisbon Movie Tour is a pioneer project in Portugal, which invites visitors to stroll through the places where scenes were shot from famous movies, making known or rediscover street corners, buildings and landscapes made immortal through the eyes of filmmakers, actors and characters as Wim Wenders, Sean Connery, Jeremy Irons, James Bond, John Malkovich and Manoel de Oliveira.
StoryTrail, a project of the Portuguese creative studio Exciting Space, is a mobile app containing geo-located video trails of people showing you the local places they know and love! The simplest way to explain our concept is to make a comparison with audio guides, which allow us listen to information at different points along a tour. StoryTrail is a huge leap forward on this, using short films to allow us to fully enjoy the passionate story-telling and personalities of our presenters as they show us around their favourite places
