FAUSTO CARDOSO DE FIGUEIREDO STATUE
Estoril was born in 1914 because of one man's dream - Fausto Cardoso de Figueiredo - and it was to become the most cosmopolitan holiday spot in Portugal until the rise of the Algarve.
Fausto helped develop the transformation of the region, mainly Tamariz Beach, and Estoril Casino.
A tribute to Fausto in the form of a statue, can be found on the grounds of Estoril Casino.
"Lovely Coastal Town"
Estoril is a coastal town situated just outside of Lisbon and next to Cascais. It is easily accessible by train from Lisbon or by car and serves as a good alternative to stop over if you prefer somewhere more peaceful.
