View of Tróia
Quinta dos Moinhos de S. Filipe is located in Setúbal, 27.5 miles away from Lisbon. It is served by two highways, A2 and A12, which lead to 25 de Abril bridge and Vasco da Gama bridge, respectively.

Located on the slope of Serra da Arrábida, the view from Quinta dos Moinhos de S. Filipe is dazzling, with the mouth of River Sado, its meeting with the Atlantic Ocean and all the life which thrives in both as its natural background.

During the day, this scenery is speckled here and there by all sorts of boats, from large ships being towed in and out of the harbour to little sail or fishing boats. Occasionally, one might catch a glimpse of dolphins. By night, a blanket of little twinkling city lights, spreading from the castle over Setúbal and across the river to Tróia peninsula, makes us feel like we're living in a Sherazade's "One thousand and one nights" tale.
