“What a super house”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Try to visit this fascinating house, a brilliant and interesting insight into the Cascais of the late 19th century when the crowned heads of Europe spent their holidays here

“Lovely castle”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is a lovely castle and it is free. The park is also worth visiting. On Saturdays there is a farmers market in the park.

“A worthwhile free attraction”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Located at one end of the Parque Marechal Carmona with separate access from the coastal road but no parking as far as I could tell; this house originally belonged to one O'Neill. Irish? Yes, but with Portuguese connections after several generations.

What I didn't expect was the good display of archaeological finds at one end of the ground floor with excellent interpretation standards.

“Cinderella Palace”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We came across this place on day 1 of our trip to Portugal. When we left our hotel, Vila Gale, Cascais and started to walk towards the town of Cascais, imagine our surprise when we found this lovely palace right beside our hotel. There was no charge to enter the Museu Condes de Castro and it was an amazing starting point of beauty that would continue throughout our stay in Portugal. We had an opportunity to view inside the palace and all the treasures inside, as well as enjoy the views on the top balconies - the Atlantic Ocean, lighthouse, fishing boats etc....the back drop to the museum is a municipal park that is quite large - about a city block - I would recommend taking a stroll through this well kept park as well. Between the palace/hotel is a small beach that we saw some people enjoy sunbathing/swimming when the tide was out. Well worth the visit!!
