Cascais, in late autumn

In this post, I will present you Cas­cais, with lit­tle words and more pic­tures.

A few facts about this for­mer fish­er­man vil­lage:

Cas­cais is a cos­mopoli­tan coastal town on the Atlantic, in Por­tu­gal, 30 km west from Lis­bon. Sit­u­ated within the Nat­u­ral Park of Sin­tra-Cas­cais, Cas­cais was awarded the”QualityCoast Gold” prize in 2016 because of its eco-sus­tain­abil­ity. Qual­i­ty­Coast is a pro­gram of the Euro­pean Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) and partly funded by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion.

It also belongs to the Covenant of May­ors, an EU ini­tia­tive involv­ing local and regional author­i­ties which aims to reduce their CO² emis­sion by more than 20% by 2020.

Cas­cais is also one of the rich­est munic­i­pal­i­ties in Por­tu­gal and actu­ally, that was obvi­ous due to the many shop­ping streets, filled up with ele­gant vit­ri­nes.

Spend­ing a whole Sun­day in its arms, one felt Cas­cais is gen­tle, warm, col­or­ful and peace­ful. It gave you the ocean, pow­der sandy beaches, a long riv­iera to walk on, many small restau­rants with local flair and the feel­ing of pri­vacy.

Although com­mer­cial, with many branded vit­ri­nes, you can escape its mate­rial flair, by tak­ing the first small street that crosses your path.

    bounce off of while the insane run free forever.
