Nice and tranquil square in the centre of Setúbal. There are some pretty buildings to admire. Ideal spot to relax in the shade and watch people (and time) passing by. There are some terraces serving that purpose perfectly. It’s a pedestrian zone so no traffic...More

Beautiful square to visit. Surrounded by traditional buildings, Church and famous Portuguese cafes, one feel very jovial and happy just being there. Hundrades of Pegions are constantly accompanying visitors without fear, have a tremendous tranquil effect.

Definitely worth it to go and visit the plaza. Great scenery with some good side street shopping on offer. Watch out for the blue fountain with pretty flowers.
