About
The Mourisca Tide Mill, located in “Herdade da Mourisca” (Sado Estuary Nature Reserve), is one of four known tidal mills in the Sado Estuary, and is in a prime location for birdwatching. This 280m2 structure was built to operate eight millstones simultaneously, which were active until the 1950’s. After years of abandonment, the Institute for Nature Conservation and Biodiversity purchased it and began its reconstruction and restoration. In 2012, after a co-management protocol was signed, the Setubal City Council was also entrusted with the responsibility of revitalising the mill and the surrounding area. A wide range of activities are carried out at the Mourisca Tide Mill throughout the year. Guided tours to the mill; Hiking (Mourisca Trail and Montado Trail); Birdwatching; Boat tours in the Sado Estuary; Workshops and themed exhibitions; Fairs and themed events (ObservaNatura and regional shows); Presenting environmental projects and Tasting oysters and regional products.

Beautiful place
Feb 2020 • Friends
I was surprised with this place. It's beautiful and it gives a feeling of total relaxation and peace. In winter time if you go there after 5pm you will watch the wonderful sunset. Inside the main house there's a coffee bar and an interesting museum. Drinks are a bit overpriced for Portuguese standards.

birdwatching in the rain
Feb 2017 • Couples
Surprisingly good list of birds... considering the strong wind and heavy showers. Mostly waders and gulls, plus a pair of black necked grebes, several spoonbills and a distant flamingo flock. Comfortable visitor centre with extremely friendly and obliging staff. No admission fee. They serve snacks, but we took sandwiches so no idea about quality and value.
