  • Nothing special but nice to see. Very nice architecture. A track of skateboarding at the edge that has nothing to do here

  • The Church of the former convent of Jesus of Setúbal is one of the great treasures of the region, constituting one of the major monuments of the Manueline in Portugal, classified as a national monument. The Gothic church features a sumptuous interior, with vaulted nave and two aisles at the same height and is famous for its beautiful columns torsas made with a typical stone of Serra da Arrábida supporting the vaults. On the ceiling are present spiral ribbing that would come to be one of the milestones of the Manueline style. The Museum, part of the Church of the former convent of Jesus of Setúbal, and includes the main artistic treasures of the city, in which are the 14 panels of the Altarpiece of the Church of Jesus, known as "Setúbal primitives", as well as about five dozens of pieces of the Museum's collections of Setubal, with art from the late middle ages , Renaissance and Baroque, a chronological roadmap between the end of the 14th century and the 20th century.

  • Very unusual look twisted columns between themselves inside the temple. Massive construction of the temple, with the light. It's beautiful!
