Why Visit Cascais, Portugal

Lovely Cascais is a petite coastal town and the most westerly point on mainland Europe. Located a mere 20 miles west of Lisbon, Cascais was the place for Portuguese royal family's summer resort in the 19th century.

The town's idyllic scenery attracted artists, writers, and European nobility. Thus, all in all, the once small fishing village turned into a modern popular vacation destination, and hundreds of people come here to rest at its many stunning beaches, as well as to sail and surf.

A great place to be absorbed into chic culture is the outstanding Conde de Castro Guimarães Palace. It is now a museum that encompasses an impressive collection of artwork and artifacts.

Situated in the heart of the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, the city is rich in history and offers some of the most spectacular natural and architectural sites in Portugal. Stroll down the streets of the unique Old Town with fancy mansions or visit the new marina built as a symbol of the city's dedication to the sea and marine life.

Plus, a great way to spice up your Portuguese journey is by exploring the versatile westernmost point on mainland Europe, called Cabo da Roca.
