It receives its name from the town where it was originally developed: Azeitão, in the foothills of the Serra da Arrábida. It is currently produced in the subdistricts of Palmela, Sesimbra and Setúbal, some 40km east of Lisbon.
It is typical that in Portuguese restaurants the Azeitao cheese in its mini format serves as a component for the appetizer.
