Visit Cascais

Introduction

The Algarve is the most popular beach destination in Portugal, but those looking for a more exclusive seaside retreat often head for Cascais, only a short distance from Lisbon. This coastal town has long been popular with the region's elite and in its glory days drew many of Europe's royals. Although this prestige has waned, remnants of it still remain in the region's luxurious beachside villas and attractions.

There is still a chance to step back in time into Cascais' glory days. The old haunt of Counts, Castro Guimarães, has been preserved as a museum and is now the town's most fascinating cultural attraction, with its extensive grounds, sea view and a library of over 250,000 books.

Also well worth a stop is the old town's central square. Paved in a chequered wave pattern, this is the heart of the old town and fanning out from its cobbles you can find numerous designer boutiques and al fresco fish restaurants. Edged by a trio of golden bays, awe-inspiring sea caves and a marina brimming with luxury vessels, the clear waters complete the town's classical charm.
