Daytrip to Cascais

4 Sep

A short train ride from Lisbon brought us to Cascais, a former fishing village and resort for Portuguese royalty and now a popular vacation spot. We found Cascais to be charming and incredibly picturesque. Back in Lisbon for the evening, we had dinner outside on Praça do Carmo and finished up with coffee and dessert at A Brasileira on Largo do Chiado. It was a fun and lively time at Largo do Chiado — at one end a juggler performed tricks, while directly in front of the cafe a band played music with a Brazilian beat. This is our last night in Lisbon and we will be sad to say goodbye. But tomorrow we will spend the night not far away in the town of Sintra.
