    Located on the main square. It has monthly exhibitions. Here you can enjoy pieces of art made by Portuguese artists but also from abroad.

    This should be the passage you take to go out of the village direction Cabo da Roca, the most westerly point of Europe. This all belonged to a same palace or farm, so that's way you can notice how the different buildings now seem to be apart from one another.

    The main church stands up from all the buildings. In the lower part of the town you can notice its size. This church is now stuck on the side of the main square in the upper part of town, surounded by walls. Strange to see a big and nice building getting tighted by walls. They should take those walls away and let the building breath.

Colares Transportation

  • by artkore Updated Mar 27, 2007

    The best and the cheapest way to travel from Sintra to Colares or Praia Das Macas is by Tram, it costs just a few euros & is an enjoyable experience. As there is only one bus company in Colares the buses are over priced & in the summer overcrowded

Colares Shopping

  • by Achim_S Updated Sep 17, 2006

    In Cascais Shopping kommt jeder auf den Geschmack einzukaufen. Dieses riesige Gebäude umfasst unzählige kleine Boutiquen, Kleidungsgeschäfte, Surfshops und und und.
    Man sollte für einmal schlendern mal mindestens 4 Stunden einkalkulieren.
    Unter anderem ist auch ein riesiger Fnaq im Cascais Shopping die neben Rechnern, Mp3 Playern etc. auch Unmengen an Cd's und Büchern in allen Sprachen haben.
    die Fahrt von Azenhas do Mar bis zum Shopping beträgt ca. 25 Minuten

    Generell: Ihr braucht von Deutschland keine Zigaretten mitnehmen, ein Päckchen West light kostet in Portugal 2,55€ mit 20 Zigaretten in einer Box ;)

    What to buy: Ab und an sind auch Zigeunermärkte in der Gegend, dort findet man in Deutschland sehr teure Artikel wie z.B. Holzfiguren etc. für ein paar Euro.
    Sollte man auf jeden Fall mal gesehen haben.

    What to pay: Bis zur Kreditaufnahme

Colares Off The Beaten Path

    Again the other side of the pathway off the street. In this case you can see a small old house with its exterior built in stone.
    The river passes right under the house.

    This can be seen if you head down off the road. Try to find passages they take you outside the streets. Iin this case you can notice wonderful nixture of men made materials along with Nature. This whole area is very rich in water. It has water springs everywhere.

    Favorite thing: This is the way out of Colares. After this you have the tunnel that belongs to a big old farm in the area.
