Create an itinerary including Centro Historico de Cascais
Centro Historico de Cascais represents the old center of a historic coastal city that was once a small fishing village. While the foundation of Cascais dates to the 12th century, it did not become a desirable resort location until the 19th or 20th centuries, when royalty began to frequent the village. Now it is a popular site for beach-goers and tourists who are interested in Portuguese history. Just a train ride away from Lisbon, this site features tiny, shop-lined side streets; cobblestone roads; several parks; and local bars and restaurants. While you're here, visit the area's art and sea museum, as well as the ruins of the Castle of Cascais.

  • Cascais is a city full of beautiful art & pictures - without entrance fee. Just take a walk and look carefully at the older houses; there are thousands of fine tiles with the most adorable motives.

  • Not as many tourists as in Sintra and Belam with shops, restaurants, bars and plenty of sites to visit as well as the beaches, there is a slower pace of life here.
