You certainly live in a beautiful part of the world. Such a shame about the old houses torn down for condos...I don't care for greedy developers much.

It is simply exquisite. The beach here cannot compare.

Marcel said...

Beautiful! I agree with you regarding the condos. They look so out of place.

Love this series of shots! They are really well done! I had just discovered your terrific blog, and then wasn't able to get back here for a long while. I am glad I took some time today to catch up! Wonderful shots!

Beautiful photographs of this lovely place. A hundred years ago - it seems - I visited Cascais and still remember it and the wondrous grilled sardines I ate.

I wouldn't mind strolling down that promenade any day!

What about the water quality there? Would you go for a swim in it? Would you taste it...?

JM said...

Yes Per, all the beaches on this coast have the blue flag, which means a very good water quality, perfect for swimming.

Thank you all for your comments.
