    Favorite thing: Take time for visit the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos (Jeronimos Monastery), it's a church in Manuelino style. I like it very much in particular the cloister. It's one of the UNESCO World Heritege sites.

    Favorite thing: Lisbon is a great city and its coastline is beautiful. Estoril is a nice reosrt with fine beaches and its worth the 3 km walk from Estoril to Cascais along the seafront. Cascais is a nice town with its small winding streets and little boutiques and its small port with all the boats coming in.

    Fondest memory: Laying on the beach!

    Favorite thing: ...People tend to come here during weekends with families, so our idea to have a Sunday lunch at one of the local beer houses like Sagres or Portugalia was made impossible!...

    Favorite thing: ...Originally it served as a fortress. Nowadays local people seem to gather here around the park during the summer weekends. Wishing I had some sparkling in my backbag...!
