Small but busy center with option to eat, train station and monuments. Walk around and you will see history everywhere.

Take the return train from Lisbon for 5 € and enjoy this charming little seaside resort town. The beaches are clean, the historic part od the town is clean and cozy.

We had a nice short time in Cascais, but got a fine of €300 for parking in a e-cars charging area, eventhough it was not clearly marked.

Cascais has changed out of all recognition since we last visited but has not lost it's charm. A great place to visit for a day or stay for a week.

Not sure. There is a big pool in the Oeiras Marina which looked public. You might want to ping them by email. Google search portoderecreio oeirasviva
