Between the mountains and the plains, your eyes get lost in endless horizons. Land of contrasts, the municipality of Palmela extends between the Arrábida Nature Park and the Nature Reserve of the Sado Estuary, among hectares of vineyards and hospitable villages, between metropolitan life and the monuments that dot the landscape and speak to us of bygone days.
Nature, cuisine, wines par excellence, horseback riding, crafts and a rich festive and cultural calendar are some of the offers Palmela has for you, not to mention the golf courses and beautiful beaches of the Arrábida. And so close, 40 kilometres from Lisbon!

Cine-teatro S. João
Officially opened on July 26th, 1952, the S. João Cine-theatre is one of the main concert halls in the area. At the centre of Largo de S. João, in the heart of the historic village, the building stands out due to its harmonious and clean lines with large interior spaces and a concert hall enriched with decorative details. A cultural centre of reference, in 2010 the venue underwent brief work that allowed modernising the venue and adapting it to new uses. Theatre, dance, music, conferences, workshops and exhibitions are some of the constants of the auditorium's agenda, but also of the Foyer and multipurpose space.
