Location description from owner

The Central Portugal region

The Costa de Lisboa/Lisbon regionAs you stroll around, you'll find wide esplanades paved with black and white mosaics, open squares where you can buy freshly roasted chestnuts in paper cones, mazes of cobbled alleys, and steeply winding streets along which quaint trams whirr.From St. George's Castle, which stands magnificently on top of one of the seven hills, Lisbon is laid out before you in a breathtaking view. White and turquoise peacocks strut around the shady gardens above which tower yellow sandstone battlements shrouded in ivy. From here, you can see terra-cotta tiled rooftops, ancient monuments, statues which preside over squares, the old quarters of the Bairro Alto and Alfama where nostalgic fado is played nightly, and the Tagus river flowing under its graceful suspension bridge. It's hard to believe that most of the city was re-built after the great earthquake of 1755 and devastating fires: redesigned in a strict grid system, preparing Lisbon for its future.Down by the Tagus, from where many explorers set sail, stands the Belem Tower with its fairy tale turrets and the proudly poised Monument to the Discoveries. Nearby is the Jeronimos Monastery: a remarkable example of Manueline architecture - a Portuguese variation on Gothic with carved nautical symbol, such as anchors and ropes. Inside are fantastic stone columns, high ribbed vaulting’s, royal sarcophagi borne by marble elephants, and stained glass windows through which pour jewelled beams of light. Other incredible sights include the imposing 14th century Carmo Convent, the beautiful Madre de Deus church which houses the fascinating National Tile Museum, and a wide range of other museums, some with art exhibitions from ancient to contemporary and some with unusual collections such as coaches and costumes.

Cascais Centre

THE ESTORIL COASTThe Estoril coasts starts in Carcavelos, 15 kilometres from Lisbon, and stretches as far as Guincho (5 km past Cascais.Beaches on the Estoril Coast face south in a continuous line from the Tagus estuary and are known for their calm waters and fine sand. All modern facilities are available - changing rooms, beach tents, shades, restaurants, bars, etc.Cascais - Litte town beaches (Praia da Rainha, Praia da Conceição) with charming surroundings and yachts bobbing on the water. The Praia da Ribeira is a picturesque spot and still a traditional fishing harbour. The beaches of Cascais have names like the "Pescadores", "Marchioness" and the "Queen", reminding us of the time when it was the "Land of Kings and fishermen". Portuguese kings and many exiled kings have lived in Cascais over the years. Praia dos Pescadores (Fisherman's beach) - where fishermen haul in their catches to be sold at the market.Guincho - 5 km from Cascais , lying at the foot of the Sintra hills and facing the Atlantic, should not be missed. The sand dunes blend subtly with the pine trees, the sea - rich in fish - rushes here and there into majestic caverns such as the famous Boca do Inferno which is well worth a visit. The vegetation is varied and beautiful and mostly of the Mediterranean type. Guincho has always been ideal for surfing owing to the large breakers, but it is now becoming increasingly known for wind surfing - a sport much developed over the last few years.Golf CoursesThere are 6 golf courses on the Estoril Coast with varying degrees of difficulty suitable for all types of players. See individual links for further details.Estoril Golf Club, EstorilEstoril Sol Golf Club, EstorilLisbon Sports Club, EstorilOitavos Dunes, CascaisPenha Longa Golf Club, SintraQuinta da Marinha Golf Club, CascaisSightseeing in CascaisThe Town HallSituated in the town centre near the Fisherman's beach (Praia dos Pescadores). Noted for its old tiles.The Citadel - Fort of CascaisThis 16th century fortress was built to protect the Bay of Cascais. It is part of a whole line of fortresses along the Tagus estuary which were built to protect Lisbon from being invaded. In the garden, there is a small, open air artillery museum.Parish Church (Assunção Church)For lovers of the history of art, a visit to this church is a must. Dating from the XVI century, the altars are carved from gilded wood - very characteristically Portuguese. In the chapel, paintings of the Annunciation date from the XVI century. On the walls of the nave, hang precious paintings by Josefa d'Obidos (1634-1684). The patroness of the Temple of Our Lady of Assumption, was painted in 1900 by Malhoa.Estoril Casino and GardensThe Estoril Casino is the largest in Europe. There is a great deal of entertainment here, including different types of gambling and nightly cabaret and music hall shows in a sophisticated atmosphere. Apart from the main activities of the casino, there is also an art gallery where a variety of art exhibitions are held, particularly of modern painting and sculpture.Crafts FairCrafts people from all over Portugal come and work here. Their products are on sale to the general public. The materials used include ceramics, tiles, wood, linen, wool, wicker etc. There are folk dancing performances and traditional Portuguese dishes are available. The fair is held in July and August, just behind the Casino.MuseumsThe Municipal Museum (Castro Guimarães Museum)Situated in one of the most sought after areas of the town, where the sea appears to be trying to reach the Gandarinha Park, is the Counts of Castro Guimarães Palace, whose medieval castle overlooks the Santa Marta Cove. The Palace was donated to the local authority in 1924, when it became a Museum. You can appreciate works of art by national and international artists, some of them depicting Cascais and rich Indo-Portuguese furniture. There are guided tours in several languages and visitors are accompanied. Do not miss the opportunity to take a walk in the adjacent park where there are lovely tiles and a mini-zoo.Museum of the SeaThe bulk of the museum is divided into various sections: Natural History (ichthyology, mammalogy, ornithology, malacology, palaeontology); ethnology (the Cascais fisherman's clothes, model fishing boats and others); underwater archaeology and maritime wreckage history (recovered treasures from the Cascais coast as well as the Tagus and Sado estuaries); along with a library specialising in theme subjects.Municipal Park (Parque Municipal da Gandarinha) - With in the park is the Cascais Sports Pavillion and the Riding School of Manuel Possolo which has regular riding events.Boca do Inferno (Hell's Mouth) - A spectacular look out point with a small daily Handicrafts Market and restaurants.
