Cascais is a seafaring city located around 30km away from Lisbon. Originally a little fisherman town, it became a touristic point when it was chosen by the Portuguese royal family as their holiday residence, back in 1930.
Although the city centre is a very beautiful place to walk across and to enjoy its stores and little streets, Cascais is very well known for its beaches. People from Lisbon usually spend the day there, when the weather allows them to do so.
Cascais fortress, known as Cidadela, is one of a group of fortresses built along the Tagus River to protect Lisbon from being conquered. From that point, you can enjoy a very nice view of the bay and visit the little museum of artillery.
Right by the sea, Cascais Museum is located inside the old Palace from de Condes de Castro Guimaraes. It displays characteristic and singular some indo-portuguese furniture, as well as a library with more than 25.000 books and a little zoo.
A peaceful piece of heaven by the Atlantic Ocean.
