Address: Cascais, Portugal

What people are saying:

Cascais, the third largest city in Portugal, is 30 kilometers west of Lisbon. Cascais was originally a fishing town. At the end of the 19th century, sea bathing became popular in Europe. Cascais was gradually transformed into a noble city. The king of Portugal also moved his summer resort here and built an official residence and five castles. Since then it has become a holiday destination. Portugal was a neutral country during World War II. The Allies and Axis countries sent a large number of agents in Cascais to collect various political and economic intelligence. At that time, there were many spies. The Duke of Windsor, England, who loves beauty and does not love the country, escaped from the tracking and kidnapping of Nazi German agents and fled to Bermuda. The prototype of James Bond 007 came from here. The author Ian Fleming’s 007 novel was also created here.
