St. Ubes, Or St. Elbes Setubal, a maritime city of Portugal, in the province of Estremadura, on the N. side of a bay of the same name, 18 m. S. E. of Lisbon; pop. about 15,000. It stands in a valley, and is defended by a castle and forts. There are several squares and promenades, all superior to any in Lisbon; and the environs are interspersed with numerous picturesque villas and orange groves. Some of the churches are handsome; and among the convents are that of the Capuchin nuns, founded in 1480, and that of Arrabida, on a mountain 1,700 ft. high. The quays are broad, and the harbor is inferior only to that of Lisbon. The well known St. Ubes salt of commerce is manufactured here from the neighboring salt marshes of the river Sado, and shipped in immense quantities, principally to Scandinavian ports. Many of the inhabitants are engaged in fishing, and sardines are extensively exported, with oranges and other southern fruits, muscatel wines, and cork. Setubal is a place of great antiquity. It suffered severely from the earthquake of 1755.
