Tours and Companies

Walking is an excellent way to learn about the history of Cascais, a former fishing village and holiday resort for kings and aristocrats.

Unhurried … enjoy everything the area has to offer!

Equipped with a map and comfortable shoes, begin your walk at the train station, near the entrance of the town. From here stroll down Avenida Valbom, and whether its summer or winter don’t forget to sample one of the best ice creams of the region in Santini’s, at the top end of the street.

Carriage ride

Reaching the end of Avenida Valbom, carry on straight ahead climbing to the right along Travessa da Alfarrobeira. On your right you will find the Visconde da Luz gardens, near where you can hire a carriage for an elegant tour in the old fashioned style. Just a thought.

At the top of Travessa da Alfarrobeira continue along Travessa dos Navegantes until you reach the Our Lady of Mariners Church. This church dates from the 18th century and is one of the oldest churches in Cascais, being one of the few that survived the 1755 earthquake.

Wander along until you reach the Gil Vicente Theatre. Facing the theatre, follow the street on the right until you meet Avenida Vasco da Gama. Here you can appreciate the architecture of some of the oldest aristocratic manors.

Meet the corners of the Parque Marechal Carmona

From the Parada gardens you can visit the Maritime Museum, then go straight ahead and enter the Marechal Carmona Park.

Cross the park and discover the Condes de Castro Guimarães Palace, presently a museum. Just a stone’s throw away, you will find the pleasant Cascais Marina, where you can enjoy the magnificent views of the coast.

Breathe the fresh sea breeze

For the more hardy, try ending the day with a relaxed walk along the coastal promenade, known as the “paredão”, that stretches 3 kilometres between Cascais and São João do Estoril. Along the way, refresh your body and spirit with the salty scent of the sea and views of its magnificent waters. To return to Cascais, give your legs a welcome break and return by train, from the São João do Estoril station.

The mysteries of Quinta do Pisão Eco-Park

Are you looking for something different to do on Saturday mornings? Gather your family and friends, forget all about your notebook and embark in one of the interpretative tours the Quinta do Pisão Eco-Park has to offer.

Your tour will be complemented with insights into all the spots of architectural and natural interest: the chapel, the threshing-floors, the stables or the ovens from the ancient 16th century village that existed here, called Casal de Porto Côvo; or even the mysterious Porto Côvo cave, used by primitive people as a necropolis.

The tours begin at 9:00 – departure from the Quinta do Pisão Eco-Park main entrance – saturday’s, every 15 days. The entrance fee is only 6 Euros per person and the proceeds will revert on behalf of the site’s recovery and biodiversity conservation actions, as well as on behalf of the Cascais section of Santa Casa da Misericórdia (Holy House of Mercy), which manages this territory in partnership with Cascais Natura.
