Cascais, Portugal

About Cascais, Portugal

At the end of one of the suburban train lines out of Lisbon, Portugal lies Cascais. They are connected by an inexpensive and regular train service. Lisbon is the most exciting capital of Europe combining culture, attractions and energy and is less than 20 minutes from Cascais.

This once tiny fishing village has grown in the last century to become the elegant beach town that it is today. Despite its proximity to Lisbon, and having swelled enormously in size, the centre of Costa do Sol, still retains much of the charm of its past and indeed its present.
