Lisbon, besides being the capital of Portugal, is the most populous city in the country, with a population of 548,000 inhabitants in an area of 100 km2. About 3 million people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (approximately 27% of the population of the whole country). Lisbon is the most western capital of Europe, and is the only capital along the Atlantic coast from the European countries.
The historic city center is composed of seven hills, and some of the streets too narrow to allow the passage of vehicles. The western part of the city is occupied by the Monsanto Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in Europe with an area of nearly 10 square kilometers.
Each district of Lisbon reveals a different city. In most historic neighborhoods, we find Alfama, Castelo, Sé, Baixa, Chiado and Príncipe Real. In more modern ones, Campo de Ourique, Amoreiras, Avenidas Novas, Restelo and Parque das Nações.
Know all about the various Lisbon's neighborhoods.
Cascais is a Portuguese village with about 35 400 inhabitants and one of the municipalities in the district of Lisbon with more than 206,000 inhabitants. It is located about 30 minutes from Lisbon, along the seafront.
Cascais is from the late nineteenth century, one of the Portuguese tourist destinations most appreciated by domestic and foreign, since the visitor can enjoy a mild climate, beaches, landscapes, varied hotel and gastronomic offer.
Thanks to Cascais Line (the name comes from the train that connects Lisbon to Cascais) and Marginal (road name along the coast from the center of Lisbon to Cascais), almost all the beaches have easy access by public transport as well as private transport.
Situated along the coast, much of its architectural heritage is related to the defense and navigation. As such, in terms of architectural highlights are the many forts, the many Roman and Visigoth ruins (villages and cemeteries), churches and chapels and houses in the former Portuguese nobility who, from the late nineteenth century, began to use this coast as vacation area.
This whole line of Cascais offers fantastic towns and resorts along the beaches or overlooking the Serra de Sintra.
