EZ walk from downtown to this attraction. The real reason to visit is the view to take photos from the lighthouse tower itself. Not good if the day is overcast.
We walked by this museum one day but you could not go up into the lighthouse until 2:30, so we decided to come back the next day. This worked well and everything was open. We climbed the tower and enjoyed the views from the lighthouse tower. The actual lighthouse museum does…
The lighthouse was good to go up and take in the view. You get a stunning shot of the sea and part of town. If you’re interested in the mechanics of lighthouses then the museum might be of interest however I found it quite boring to be honest!
I was lucky in going to the top 9f the lighthouse as only open for one hour a day and open when I visited. One of the most photographed spots in Cascais. It offers great views over the marina and the neighbouring museum.
This is a old light house now modernized. You can have a break on your day trip out or in of Lisbon.
