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.
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.
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.
