House of Wonders

The best Cascais terrace is at the top of this coffee shop-gallery that serves vegetarian, vegan and summer meals, even raw. It is worthwhile to go there to buy crockery, to drink a glass on the terrace and to see the sights, or to taste one of the salads, juices, cakes or tea of the house, always made according to the imagination of the owner. Well worth it.

Taberna Clandestina

It functions as a snack restaurant in the hours of sunlight – mostly based on cheese and sausage boards – and at night turns into a bar. As it is not easy to get a table and only accept reservations until 19.00, what good people do is to spend in Clandestina, as it is known, to drink a gin and tonic, a glass of Portuguese or Italian wine, a beer or a cocktail of the house, with lemon juice, basil, ginger beer and gin.

The sands, classic dry cakes that, once crushed, look like a child’s sand bucket, have the first records in Cascais in the 19th century; the walnuts of Cascais, more humid cakes, will have been born in the Convent of Nossa Senhora da Piedade, built in the 16th century (where today the Cultural Center of Cascais exists). They have a glazed sugar coating, more crispy, and half walnut on top. They are on sale at Bijou de Cascais, a classic pastry, on the way to 90 years.

Cimas English Bar

A classic that survived the glorious 50s and 60s of the Costa del Sol: there passed royal families, politicians, intellectuals and spies.

Bairro dos Museus

Cascais created a true cultural microclimate with the implementation of what he called the Museum Quarter. The concept is simple and only requires that you take a walk around the perimeter that concentrates a set of equipment dedicated to the culture in the village. Conceived by the Cascais City Council and the D. Luís I Foundation, the Museum Quarter in Cascais stands out for its strong component of innovation and cultural coherence. To enter the buildings you can choose (go for us, which compensates) for buying the single ticket. It costs 8€ and gives access to all the equipment of the Museum Quarter.



The nickname of OHficina is Laboratory of Improbable Materials and it is with them that we work in this old greenhouse of Marechal Carmona Park, transformed into a playroom for kids of all ages. But serious jokes, since the project is based on education, environmental sustainability and art.

Parque das Gerações

It’s called Park of Generations and the name is not for nothing, since it is always full of people of all ages. There are about ten thousand square meters of ramps and unevenness, divided into several zones, perfect for skateboarding, cycling or other extreme sports. And it does not matter if you do not have experience, because in this skate park so much the great athletes walk on wheels like the youngest, that still barely balance on the board. Cherry on top of the cake, everything overlooks the sea.
