Setúbal offers enough outlets for local handicrafts to keep any devoted shopper busy for at least a full afternoon.
Fortuna (tel. 21/287-10-68), a ceramics factory and technical school, dominates the hamlet of Quinta do Anjo, 6.5km (4 miles) northeast of Setúbal. To reach it, follow signs to Palmela. São Simão Arte (tel. 21/218-31-35), a leading competitor, manufactures ceramics that are glazed and painted fancifully with renditions of flowers, vines, and woodland animals, some of them mythical. The store is the focal point of the hamlet of Azeitão, 15km (9 1/3 miles) northwest of Setúbal. Both offer factory tours and ample shopping opportunities.
