The Monocle magazine surrendered to the charms of Cascais.
Having already done some reporting on Lisbon, Porto and other local Portuguese places, the July and August issue of the British magazine highlights on the cover “Why we should all move to Cascais.”
With two headlines on the magazine’s cover, Monocle refers to Cascais as the “Summer in the City”, describing the fishing village as “The Lisbon enclave where architecture and beach both meet and have a final happy. “
Inside, the British magazine dedicated a report of eight pages to Cascais. Spoke with people of various nationalities who explained why they chose that location to live.
Guincho beach, the Main Church, the Paula Rego’s House of Stories and the Lighthouse of Santa Maria, Monocle travels through some of the most emblematic places of the town where not even a visit to the famous ice cream shop – Santini – was forgotten.
Situated about 30 km from Lisbon, Cascais has been gaining more and more notoriety internationally, not only the landscapes that combine beach, mountain, leisure and proximity to the capital, as the media events that has managed to accomplish.
“The pace is quieter here than anyone in Lisbon. Everyday seem to be weekend,” explained the Monocle Novais Adriana, a Brazilian who lives in Cascais for 17 years.
