Troino and Fonte Nova.

The Tróino Quarter and New Source keep narrow streets with pigeons everywhere; when passing on the street, listening easily from inside the houses, all of them with an open window: the sound of the radio or a fado cd, make the company to old ladies who care for grandchildren or people who do not have no one to care softens the loneliness to see who goes.

Rua Vasco da Gama
Dona Rosa, If you like baked fish, fresh, directly from the husband of Dona Rosa trawler? Is here! I recommend boiler fish is delicious. Closed on Monday, on this day does not exist fresh fish, is the rest day of the fishermen.
A Fonte Nova. The New Source at the background on the left. It was built by real decision at the sec. XVIII. Today not lay water.
House with pigeons!

And to visit without fear, quietly, and where you can taste good roasted fish. No one, as the people of Setúbal, know bake fish or make a nice dish of clams or cuttlefish.

What a powerful sculpture in #3!

This statue is so recent in the square. I think it was intended to honor a worker who in the early twentieth century was killed while claiming labor rights. It was inaugurated on International Women's Day. The statue is by the sculptor Jorge Pé-Curto.
But more interesting is the source of the eighteenth century, which is the background on the left. This fountain was the king's offer to the local population. It is for it that this square have the popular name Praça da Fonte Nova (Square of the New Source).

Um tipo de vida que se tem vindo a perder. Boa série

É verdade p que diz António, no entanto no Troino o convívio entre gerações ainda existe.
É daqui o conhecido sotaque setubalense, carregando nos erres. Só aqui se conseguem ouvir ainda algumas palavras e frases típicas do linguarejar dos pescadores, embora a sua população ligada ao mar já quase não existe. Só conheço um mestre de traineira, que é o esposo da D. Rosa, dona do restaurante Dona Rosa, onde se pode comer todos os dias peixe muito fresco, "directamente da traineira" e a caldeirada é divinal.
Todos os dias menos à segunda-feira. Se for a Setúbal, peixe é aqui. Chegue cedo pois a mesas são poucas.

It is true what you say Antonio , however Troino in the interaction between generations still exists.
It is therefore the accent of Setubal, by pressing the r . Only here you can still hear some words and phrases typical of fishermen . The population connected to the sea almost doesn't exist in the neighborhood. I only know a trawler Master , who is the husband of Dona Rosa , owner of the restaurant Dona Rosa , where you can eat every day very fresh fish , " directly from the trawler " and the fish stew is divine. Every day, except on Monday . If you go to Setúbal , the fish is here. Arrive early because the tables are few.
