Travel InformationINFORMATION ABOUT VISAS AND MORE!

ESTORIL, LISBON, PORTUGAL

Estorila world-famous resort, is a true cosmopolitan center with wonderful nightlife and all the infrastructure for a summer center - beaches, excellent hotels, golf courses, a casino, and even a motor-racing circuit.

The planned transformation of this area began in the early 20th century, due not only to its proximity to the sea, which was starting to be a focus of attraction but also to the existence of thermal springs, which at that time were much in vogue.

The center of this new luxury resort was the Park and the Casino (Estoril's trademark), surrounded by buildings, arcades, and excellent hotels.


Here are some Best Things to Do & See in Estoril:

Estoril Casino

Whilst maybe not quite as glitzy as Las Vegas, the Casino in Estoril is reputed to be the largest in Europe. Whether or not this is still the case the casino is definitely big, offering over 1,000 slot machines and Game Tables such as Roulette, Blackjack, Banca Francesa, Punto Banco, Baccarat, and Poker.

Pena National Palace

Fairytale castle meets Disney palace set on the top of the hill high above Sintra. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the finest examples of19th century Romanticism anywhere in the world

Cidadela de Cascais

this 15th-century citadel, overlooking Cascais marina at the mouth of the Tejo Estuary, has played a crucial role in the history of Portugal, having witnessed fights against pirates as well as battles against Spanish and French Forces

Cascais Marina

Cascais has a long-established seafaring tradition dating back to the Age of Discovery. The modern marina was only built-in 1999, with more recent additions of shops, high-end bars, and restaurants. The marina in Cascais is the third-largest in Portugal and has hosted a number of world-class sailing events including the America's Cup World Series 2011 and the ISAF World Sailing Championship in 2007

Castle of the Moors

Situated on a high hilltop above the town of Sintra, the site does indeed date back to the Moorish occupation of Portugal. The walls and towers that you see now though are the Romantic/Decorative work of the 19th century King, Ferdinand II.
