Cascais Historic Center, Cascais

4.5
Cascais Historic Center 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.

  • We did not know the Portugal and as we play golf, we landed here for a few days. What a beautiful place. It's clean at home in Switzerland and if we compare with saint too... and it stops there, there ' was not the mass of suckers, the people are friendly. Estoril and Cascais are great locations and Lisbon not far is superb. Viva Portugal

  • The historic centre of Cascais is very nice, the best of Portugal. The marina and the sea give a very nice scenery, but also the buildings of the area and the strong/Citadel, now adapted hotel 5 stars, as well as the local environment, make this the best area of town to walk around and enjoy.
