About Cascais & Sintra

Cascais is known as “The Town of Kings and Fishes” because it was a small fishing town that found favour with the 19th century Portuguese nobility, who came here for their summer retreat. Thanks to this fact, the town is uncommonly rich in beautiful architecture, free museums and carefully maintained parks, on top of which, it’s surrounded by a varied coastline of impressive cliffs and beautiful, intimate sandy coves.

Sintra is nestled within the pine covered hills of the Serra de Sintra. This slightly cooler climate encouraged the Portuguese royalty to construct their palaces and castles within the vicinity of the town. Sintra contains varied palaces, castles and grand houses, all of which are uniquely styled and built. It features a delightful town centre and challenging hiking trails.
