In the early 20th century, Cascais became one of the most famous resorts in Europe, welcoming aristocrats and artists in search of the pleasures of its beaches, casinos, spas, hotels and golf courses.
Cascais positively bustles with an abundance of cafés, restaurants, excellent shopping, weekly markets, interesting museums, and a maze of cobbled streets leading to the colourful marina. It also has a wonderful beachfront promenade that links Cascais with Estoril and is lined with outdoor cafés and leisure areas that overlook the beautiful sandy beach and Atlantic Ocean.
The Portuguese capital, Lisbon, with its wide avenues, squares, quaint trams, and the historic Alfama district is just a short train journey from Cascais. Not to be missed on this holiday is the optional excursion to Sintra, high in the mountains and boasting castles, palaces, romantic gardens and Gothic and Manueline architecture.
Strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream, the Lisbon coast enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate with mild winters, making February a pleasant time to visit.
