Pass By: Cascais, Cascais, Lisbon District, Central Portugal
Cascais began as a fishing village and was developed mainly when his Majesty the King Dom Carlos I of Portugal decided to use the Citadel of Cascais to build his summer residence, now transformed into a Pousada. King Dom Carlos was a great sailor, so he loved the sea and so, living in Cascais, was close to it every day. With him noble families also came to live in this picturesque village and, even today, it is a very aristocratic village.
Due to Portugal's neutrality during World War II, Cascais also had an important role as major safe area for political refugees. At that time, King Umberto II of Italy lived here in exile.
Naturally, the proximity to the Atlantic has always contributed to keeping alive. the fishing traditions and nautical sports, especially sailing. The conditions of the Cascais Marina, the calm sea, the climate, the beaches, and the heritage are more than enough reasons for it to be a place of choice for many seamen who spend their holidays here and for holding frequent regattas, either recreational or competitive.
At the northern end of the town, Boca do Inferno (Hell’s Mouth) is a very popular place to visit. It is a striking rock formation where you can observe the power of nature and the sea. Further along, you can see the São Jorge de Oitavos Fort and, some 10km away you can find the Guincho Beach, another area with an incredible seascape, known for offering fabulous fresh fish and seafood meals. It is one of the main surfing and windsurfing spots on the Portuguese coast, often featuring in world tournaments.

Very Knowledgeable guide. He speak several languages. They adapted the trip to our needs
The tour was excellent. Sara was very knowledgeable not just about Sintra, but about many historical facts and places within the Lisbon area and friendly and made the trip well worth it. We would highly recommend the tour for those who only want to spend a half day trip outside of Lisbon.
This tour was amazing!
6 of us took the private tour to Sintra from Lisbon. It was the perfect way to begin 10 days in Portugal - mainly due to our wonderful guide, Santiago. He took us to the Palace of Pena where he accompanied us inside(unlike some other tours when the guide drops you off and picks you up later). Santiago shared the history and folklore of the beautiful palace on the hill. His English was perfect and his knowledge covered everything from culture to history to American current affairs, and anything else we could throw at him.
We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Joanna, was the greatest!! She had a wealth of knowledge regarding these sites as well as the history of Portugal in general -- not just Lisbon. We now have a great deal of appreciation for Lisbon and Portugal bc of all that we learned from her. From the history of the exploration to the architecture and even the best foods of Lison, we gave us so much more than just a tour!! We do believe that we much enjoyed this tour and the information alone paid more than for the cost of this tour. We urge you take this tour. And if possible, see if you can ask for Joanna. She is the BEST!!
A nice leisurely private tour of the area while we waited for our cruise ship to board. The guide was fantastic and they even dropped us off at the cruise terminal at the end of the tour.
