Centro Historico de Cascais, Cascais

4.5
Centro Historico de Cascais represents the old center of a historic coastal city that was once a small fishing village. While the foundation of Cascais dates to the 12th century, it did not become a desirable resort location until the 19th or 20th centuries, when royalty began to frequent the village. Now it is a popular site for beach-goers and tourists who are interested in Portuguese history. Just a train ride away from Lisbon, this site features tiny, shop-lined side streets; cobblestone roads; several parks; and local bars and restaurants. While you're here, visit the area's art and sea museum, as well as the ruins of the Castle of Cascais.

  • Visit Portugal and visit one of the aristocratic places of rest-Cascais, realized now dream! We lived in Estoril and every day walking along the ocean to the lovely Cascais, very quiet lyrical atmosphere, the smell of the ocean. Fish and Luxury Restaurants--The whole place reminded me of Poirot's films, when he traveled the world, staying in the most luxurious places! So here-a place graceful, leisurely, drink ocean air, in May all raged in bloom, even shallow warm rain did not spoil the mood, armed with rain, we persistently enjoyed the views and luxury beaches, it's just a miracle! If you want to enjoy a moment without fuss, you will like, walked every day for many kilometers and enjoyed every minute, everything is fine-castle, walks, restaurants, aromas of the ocean spring
