A suburb of Lisbon ( 30 km west of Lisbon ) and extending along six miles of beach, Estoril and CASCAIS comprise the Portuguese Riviera.
Cascais was a small fishing village throughout early history as it lies at the mouth of the Rio Tejo and is protected from nature's elements.
In 1870 King Luis I chose to convert the 17th century "Palacio da Citadela" into his summer residence. Cascais soon became a very fashionable town and aristocratic palaces and mansions followed, thus the name "Coast of Kings".
Hans and I really enjoyed our time in Cascais, as it is a typical seaside resort with Belem, Lisbon and Sintra easily accessible, plus its restaurants boast good wine and seafood dishes and traditional Portuguese cuisine.
After spending two weeks in the Algarve, Hans and I were here for a few days because of its proximity to Lisbon Airport. It's a beautiful coastal town and so looking forward to being there again in May, 2009 for the Euromeet.
