Estoril

       

 

Tucked away to the west of lisbon is an area which attracted international visitors.Estoril is a conglomerate of four regions, all with Estoril in their title: Monte Estoril, São João do Estoril, São Pedro do Estoril and Santo António do Estoril.

Early in the 20th century the resort became the playground of the rich and famous who came here to relax and sunbathe;luxurious hotels accommodated illustrious visitors which included royalty and ex-royalty.

The beach and the casino still remain big attractions. Offering a broad stretch of fine sand, Estoril’s Tamariz beach is crowded in summer.The casino has been renovated internally and offers bars, a restaurant, a floor show, gaming machines and comfortable surroundings in which to win or lose a fortune at roulette, baccarat and the like.

Just inland from Estoril, along the road to Sintra is the racing track Autodromo do Estoril where once the F1 GP was held in September. Just beyond the race track is a shopping centre with a car park for 3000cars.

There is also a pedestrian walkway on the seaward side at a lower level which is sheltered from traffic noise making it a pleasure to stroll between these two adjacent resorts. Starting out from Tamariz beachin the centre of Estoril, the nest beach to the west is Praia Monte Estoril here pavement cafés offer a colourful atmosphere for a light lunch or a quick lunch snack before reaching Cascais.
