Cascais is a Portuguese village with about 35 400 inhabitants and one of the municipalities in the district of Lisbon with more than 206,000 inhabitants. It is located about 30 minutes from Lisbon, along the seafront.
Cascais is from the late nineteenth century, one of the Portuguese tourist destinations most appreciated by domestic and foreign, since the visitor can enjoy a mild climate, beaches, landscapes, varied hotel and gastronomic offer.
Thanks to Cascais Line (the name comes from the train that connects Lisbon to Cascais) and Marginal (road name along the coast from the center of Lisbon to Cascais), almost all the beaches have easy access by public transport as well as private transport.
Situated along the coast, much of its architectural heritage is related to the defense and navigation. As such, in terms of architectural highlights are the many forts, the many Roman and Visigoth ruins (villages and cemeteries), churches and chapels and houses in the former Portuguese nobility who, from the late nineteenth century, began to use this coast as vacation area.
This whole line of Cascais offers fantastic towns and resorts along the beaches or overlooking the Serra de Sintra.
