New Walk! Cascais - Contemporary architecture at the seaside
Beyond Belem, Lisbon's metropolitan area extends along the“Costa do Sol”, an urban region built-up along the seaside, ending in Cascais to the west.
The most popular images of Cascais depict a charming town with eclectic mansions, dotted around the bay, and the original fishermen settlement. There is however a contemporary nature in Cascais, linked to projects awarded to renowned Portuguese architects, following the turn of the millennium.
Exploring the seashores and the interior of the town, we visit some of these remarkable projects, focusing on the restoration of classified built heritage and new buildings.
