Pousada Setubal (official name Pousada São Filipe) sits on the site of the 16th century fort of Sao Filipe.  It overlooks the Sado river estuary, and the Atlantic near the peninsula Troia.

Nighttime view from Pousada terrace

The entrance to the Pousada is by a discreet door, strategically opened in a reserved corner in the base of the fortress. The national shield with its five edges is sculpted in the stone above that door. Then a ramp of 40 worn-out steps, inside of a high and arched tunnel, gives access to the Pousada.

In the middle of the flight of stairs stands a room that is now used as a meeting room. Four hundred years ago it was the entrance of the prison. On arriving at the top of the stairs, on the left side, you will find the private chapel of the fort - containing a wonderful coating of tiles from the 18th century depicting various figures and scenes.

The view from the Pousada Setubal is breathtaking. In one sweeping panorama, you can take in the immense blue of the Setúbal bay, the riverside zone of the city, the wonderful beaches of the peninsula of Troia, and in the mountain of Arrábida.  That view makes dining in the restaurant especially pleasant.


The city of Setubal is a main port. It has wonderful waterfront walks, and a fascinating historic quarter. It is only a 45 min. drive to the capital of Lisbon.

At the Pousada Setubal, everything is adapted to receive and present the visitor with the most modern conveniences, while much of furniture in the public areas are antiques from centuries past. Eight of the rooms have a sea view; the other eight are inner rooms.
