  • Very impressed with the collection of paintings. Also the building worth a visit to see this Souto de Moura project.  more »
  • Was not familiar with Paula Rego's work before visiting, but so enjoyed this gallery, seeing her art, and learning about her life. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Cascais.  more »
  • When you see them don't know that there are, there they are visible and you don't see any identification. It caught our attention and here on tripadvisor I see that it is. Thank you

  • Beautiful collection accompanied by Paula rego's own words and stories which made every work so much more tangible. They are a little strict (no drinks, no cameras, no bags) but else much like any other museum. They also have a little posh cafe where the coffee actually tastes like coffee!
  • There was no exhibition when I went here. The buildind is intersting and environment is very calming
  • Striking, beautiful, very modern building. So restful - to do with the colour of the reddish concrete, and the integration with trees and grass. Outside courtyard of the cafe so tranquil. Inside space very open and neutral allowing focus to be on paintings on the wall.
  • Peaceful location, you need to be a fan of the artist to appreciate exhibition.
  • Paul Auster. Great

Where to stay in Cascais

The seaside resort town of Cascais, one of Lisbon's wealthiest suburbs, offers solid options for both enjoying the sun and surf and getting away from the bustle of the capital. By staying right near the beach, you'll be within easy walking distance of both the soft sand and the restaurants and bars of the town center. Most of the bigger hotels along the waterfront and near the marina provide balconies and sweeping views over the ocean as well. However, you can also check into a smaller guesthouse for a lower bill and equally good location in the center of town. Grabbing a room at one of the guesthouses or hotels in nearby Estoril offers a similar beachfront experience not far from Cascais itself, plus this location offers more in terms of choice.
