Historic centre Cascais Reviews
Nice to pass some time Sep 08, 2010
There’s a modern side of Cascais, that has fairly modern buildings, many touristy shops and a McDonalds, but there’s also a historic centre with grand pastel coloured buildings that almost all have those typical fabulous tiles at the façade, like the city hall for instance.
Most of these buildings are a reminder from the late 19th century and early 20th century when Cascais became a popular vacation spot for both Portuguese and foreign tourists.
The citadel is the remainder of the vacations from the royal family, but at this moment you can only see the outside walls since they are doing some hefty reconstructions on the inside.
