CASCAIS: THE TOWN

 

“Come for one reason. Stay for many” – the slogan of the region says it all!

 

Historically Cascais was a small fishing village located approx. 20 km from Lisbon on the beautiful Atlantic coast. It turned into a favourite spot of European nobility in the early 20th century and today it is an elegant blend of 19th century architecture, traditional Portuguese charm and outstanding tourist facilities.

Cascais is a paradise for those who enjoy outdoor activities, the ones who just seek to relax or those who want to explore the history of the region or delicious Portuguese gastronomy. Beautiful, romantic and historical Sintra is around the corner and Lisbon & its airport are within a quick ride.
