Day trips: Sintra, Cascais, Estoril, Obidos..., Lisbon: 24 reviews and 28 photos
Favorite thing: Cascais is a small town on the Atlantic coast, located some 30 km west of Lisbon. Once it was a fishing village. Today it is a famous tourist resort.
One of the attractions of Cascais is the Palace of Castro Guimaraes.
The Igreja Matriz (the main church) has some paintings by Josefa de Obidos. Unfortunately I couldn't see them, because the church was closed when I visited Cascais..
If you happen to find the church and the palace closed you could rest on one of the beaches of the town, have a good lunch at a restaurant and do some shopping. There are lots of shops in Cascais!
You can go to Cascais from Lisbon in about half an hour by train; from Cais do Sodrè train station.
