Fort of Saint Anthony of Barra in Estoril parish, located in Cascais, was one of the most monumental buildings that we saw in Cascais. The previous summer residence of António de Oliveira Salazar, was just recently renovated and opened to the public.
Praia da Rainha, translated – The Queen’s Beach, is the smallest beach in Cascais, and most definitely one of the most scenic. The story tells us that the last Queen of Portugal, Queen Amelia, was so charmed by it that she proclaimed this place to be her own, hence the name.
Apart from being a crossing point for many touristic paths, Praça 5 de Outubro is a lively place with many local restaurants and bars. The beach across the street in Cascais, makes a perfect place to spend an entire day, just enjoying the sun.
Peniscola is the kind of town that is our favourite to visit. Beautiful with a rich history, but still not so much discovered by travellers and photographers. The Castle was built in the 13th century by Knights Templar. At some point, this Castle also became a house to Pope Benedict III.
Valencia Marina or as officially known, Juan Carlos 1 Marina, became famous because of America’s Cup to Valencia in 2007 and was also the time when it was renovated. The fame, after its restoration, not only drew in tourist’s but also historical vessels with a view that would please any boat-lover.
