Portugal is becoming one of the favorite destinations for Spaniards, in part because of the crisis that does not allow people to go very far, so by road and in a few hours in the neighboring country, which has a lot to offer and that we should all take advantage of. the short distance to visit it. Of the cities that you will have heard the most about is Porto, Lisbon and Benfica, but there is another that I particularly loved and as soon as I can I will return, even for a couple of days. It is about Estoril .
Estoril was the refuge of the Spanish Royal Family when Don Juan de Borbón, father of our king, had to go into exile during the Franco government. It is about 25 kilometers from Lisbon and is one of the most important tourist places in the country. Right on the coast, it runs from Carcavelos to Guincho , a wonderful walk to enjoy nature and the sea. Its climate is fantastic almost all year round, so when you go there it is very likely that you can take a bath, at least to taste Portuguese waters.
Of the many beaches in Estoril , Tamariz beach is the most visited by tourists, also surrounded by restaurants where you can eat that wonderful cod that our neighbors cook so well. In addition, in the immediate vicinity of the beach there is a castle that belongs to the Royal Family of Monaco, so you may meet a member during your stay. Nearby is also the Estoril Casino , inspiration for the James Bond movie Casino Royale. The Estoril promenade is spectacular and encompasses several beaches, so if you stay for several days you can dedicate a day to each of them. Without a doubt, a vacation that you will not forget and that you can have for little money and a very short trip.
