If you like architecture and portugese tiles, this house is a must. I had the good luck to get a free private tour by a very well informed and enthusiastic guide who leads visitors around the house during the summer.

We did not go in but looks like a nice landmark where people sit around and enjoy the small marina. Very close to the main streets. Supposedly free for "seniors".

By walking in Cascais there are a lot to visit, the nice Casa de Santa Maria, near the lightower, a beautiful house in 1760, a perfect exemple of the taste of that time with enorm spaces, a real splendour.

Easy to find; right on the walking path along the Cascais coast, for 3 Euros you can view an early 19th century house designed by Raul Lino. Not overly furnished but a walk through the main, upper and basement floors are interesting. House remains cool...More
