Cascais is like a royal resort, full of different sights, and most notably, various, beautiful beaches. Though the ocean was a bit cold, we still had to dip in a bit, but it was good to lay under the sun a while, away from the bustling city of Lisbon. We took the train to Cascais, and visited first some monuments, like the Sao Jose fortress and the Lighthouse Museum, before going to the beach. When we had enough of the sun and the water we sat down at one of the terraces and had a really tasty dinner. Their seafood dishes are quite delicious. It was a beautiful, enjoyable day!
