Alan Rogers Review
Alcácer do Sal is an attractive town, south of Setúbal, with a colourful history dating back to the times when it was an important Roman trading city. This municipal site is well located for exploring the town. Pitches are grassy and and most are equipped with 6A electricity. A sports centre lies adjacent and includes a swimming pool and tennis courts. A number of shops, cafés and restaurants are available within easy walking distance. The nearest beaches are at Comporta, around 30 km. to the west. This is a great expanse of sand, very popular with surfers.
Alcácer lies on the River Sado, one of Portugal’s major rivers, entering the Atlantic at Setúbal. It is well known at this point for its healthy colony of bottlenose dolphins. Setúbal is a major city with an important fishing tradition (particularly sardines). The city is well worth a visit with some fine buildings in the Portuguese late Gothic style, notably the Mosteiro de Jesus (Monastery of Jesus).
Sanitary facilities include hot showers, toilets and washbasins and provision for disabled visitors. Washing machine. Motorcaravan services. Sports field. Play area. Tennis.
