Visit Cascais

It has probably happened to you: seeing an incredible landscape, taking a photo and realising that the grandiosity of the scenery was impossible to capture.

It’s like trying to describe a strong emotion, but not finding the right words. There is a reason for this: some things are really meant to be experienced. Cascais is one of them.
