Cascais is a beauty. I spent a few hours wandering its center, looking out over the marina and beach next to it, admiring the tiled paths along the pedestrian section. As lovely as it is, I confess a few hours is all a poor fellow can afford, and only if he limits his eating to a gelato (which is what... More

About an hour from Lisbon by train, this is a very clean, well organized city (really a town) on the water. We saw a couple of nice, small beaches in the center of town and there might be larger ones nearby. The old castle grounds are nice and the small botanical park is a fantastic place for a casual lunch... More

There is much history and interesting architecture but we were there on a beautiful sunny day and took advantage of staying outdoors and walking along the ocean promenade.

Pleasant area to walk around. Clean & well kept. Short uphill walk from the seafront at Cascais. Pretty old town streets lead from the top of the hill with a small, peaceful park & several shady squares nearby.

We chose to book our stay here in Cascais because this place seemed to be not as busy as the big city. Indeed it is a nice, small and calm place, but also very popular to tourists. You can enjoy sitting on the coast or the beach. It is easy to get relaxed very quickly. The nature around Cascais is... More

The fortress offers a nice walk around it. Very good views. Not much in the interior (there is a hotel there), but along the outside it is a nice walk, especially for evening.
