Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Central Portugal / Lisbon District / Cascais / Centro Historico de Cascais
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Centro Historico de Cascais by using our Cascais online travel planner.
