Cascais Portuguese Atlantic fishing village
Cascais Portuguese Atlantic fishing village is a coastal town in Cascais Municipality in Portugal, 30 kilometres (19 miles) west of Lisbon, with about 35,000 residents. It is a cosmopolitan suburb of the Portuguese capital and one of the richest municipalities in Portugal. The former fishing village gained fame as a resort for Portugal’s royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Nowadays, it is a popular vacation spot for both Portuguese and foreign tourists.

The town is small enough to explore entirely by foot, up the hill beyond the town centre there are numerous narrow cobbled streets to explore with interesting architecture, plants and animals to see.
I am really not sure what this building is, if I find out I’ll let you know. 😳
The Citadel is actually a prolongation of the Nossa Senhora da Luz Fortress and is the only part that can actually be visited today. It housed the Soldiers’ Hospital, considered the most well equipped and competent infirmary in the whole Portuguese military history.
