Cascais, an ancient fishing village on the road to Lisbon, forms part of what has been dubbed the Portuguese Riviera. Thanks to its stunning seaside location, Cascais has served as a luxurious summer retreat for Portuguese kings and even today, its long beaches – such as gorgeous Guincho – are loved by the locals and tourists alike. Head inland on your Cascais holidays, and you'll discover a rabbit
warren of narrow streets dotted with opulent buildings that form the historic centre. Here, you can taste the region’s cuisine, wander around the boutique shops, or enjoy a coffee on one of the sun-soaked café terraces. For a slice of Cascias’ history, visit the Castro Guimaraes Museum or the ancient Citadel of Cascais fort, built to protect the coastline during the 15th century. For a holiday fit for a king, Cascais has a royal stamp of approval.
