    Inserted inside the Citadel of Cascais is a historic place that leads to the birth of Cascais and your importance in the defense of this Village. In one of the rooms can watch a video about the same (in several languages). Also can the top of the wall have a view over Cascais and over the ocean.

    On the way to the Centre of Cascais into hell's mouth we could visit this fortress. Very interesting. Worth with time delving into your story.

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.
