Cascais to porto

by beccawyer

Is it easy to get a train from cascais to porto?

Re: Cascais to porto

by cubsur

Pretty straightforward.

The local trains from Cascais will take you into Lisbon's Cais do Sodre station. They run every every 10 - 20 minutes, journey 35 minutes or so.

From Cais do Sodre you make your way across town to Santa Apolonia station from where the trains to Porto leave about once every hour. Journey time is 3 to 3hrs 30 minutes depending on the train.

You can get all the times and fares in detail at www.cp.pt in English if you click on the little flag icon at the top next to where it says 'Acesso rapido'.

Be aware that seat reservation is compulsory on all Lisbon - Porto trains and it is a very busy line, so best reserve on-line if you can. Seat reservations open 30 days before travel. If you wait until the last moment to buy a ticket you might find all seats taken.

It's about 2.4km/1.5 miles between the two Lisbon stations. There's no direct metro (underground train) route but you can do it easily enough with one change of line.

I hope that helps.

Re: Cascais to porto

Apart from the excellent previous reply, I'd like to add som info:

www.cp.pt is the portuguese ralway network, but for the timetable, look for Urbanos Lisboa, then, Cascais line/linha.

Once in Lisbon/Cais do Sodré, take the metro to Santa Apolonia (www.metrolisboa.pt).

The train will stop at Porto-Campanha, once there, to go to the city centre, you have two options: Take the metro (www.metrodoporto.pt) to wherever you need to go (moe or less) or take an urban train to the ao Bento station (www.cp.pt, then, urbanos Porto, any line.

I hope it helps.)

Praia da Ribeira de Cascais

by ncfg

It is another beach located in the centre of the Village of Cascais. It possesses good accesses (stairs and slopes) and it has limited and paid parking. This beach has a wharf for boats. It seems very nice :-)

Cascais Fortress

by pieter_jan_v

Because of the strategic location this coastal corner at the Tejo river was fortified and equipped with a watchtower. This first fortress was inaugurated by King João II (1481-1495).
Through the years the fortress grew bigger.
In 1870 King Luis I had the fortress converted "Palacio da Citadela" into his summer residence. This was the start of growing importance of Cascais.

The building now is a National monument.

The Cidadela still is in use by the Military.
