Largo São João Baptista

Here, where you find yourself, is Largo de São João Baptista. It is surrounded by some of the most emblematic buildings in Palmela, such as the Chapel of São João Baptista - Temple of the Order of Malta, the municipal library, the Theater and the Casa Mãe Rota dos Vinhos.

An old settlement was already established here during the Neolithic period. Unfortunately, we have no visible remains of it.

It is to this square that we suggest that you return at the end of the tour, with the well-deserved rest on the terrace of Casa Mãe Rota dos Vinhos, which is right in front of the Theater, to have a refreshing drink and taste some of the regional products.

For now, here next to the Library, you have a beautiful view over the Serra do Louro, marked by its characteristic windmills, where you will return at the end of your tour.

The beginning is along the street, right in front of the Coreto (the bandstand), dating from 1924, for use by the Humanitarian Philharmonic Society of Palmela, founded in 1864. It was built in marble and iron with a typical decoration of that time.
