When you go for a walk on the seashore at Carcavelos, no problem taking your four-legged friend with you if you feel like having a drink or a snack at Gémeos (Twins' Bar). Your dog will be resting on the shade right in front of you.

Vasco da Gama Tower, with its rotating restaurant on top, was built for EXPO 98. The concrete building (Myriad by Sana Hotels) was added years later. The view is fantastic.
