There are some lovely tiles visible in the main part of Cascais, of course, especially on the Town Hall.

But it is worth exploring further afield to see what you can see.

I found whole frontages covered in tiles, small above-the-front-door pictures, street signs.......

The non-touristy western part of the town really is worth an hour or so's wandering. Walking up and down its narrow streets and small alleyways provides many points of interest.

Directions: Explore the area between the main part of town and the Citadela/Igreja d'Assuncao/Rua Manuel J. Avelar.
