Boca do Inferno
Enjoy spectacular views at this famous landmark in Cascais. It is at full glory when the waves are aggressive.
The Boca do Inferno is an interesting cliff formation close to Cascais, which has been given an overly dramatic name of Hell’s Mouth. The ceaseless pounding of the Atlantic Ocean on the cliffs chiselled out a small cave, which subsequently collapsed forming a small bay and natural arch.
One of the most famous places to visit in Cascais is “Boca do Inferno” (portuguese for “Hell´s Mouth”) this is a unique rock formation on the edge of the ocean. The open cavity area forms a sort of arch where sea water enters and crashes in a dramatic fashion
“One of the green lungs of Cascais. Has something of a romantic feel, with many quiet spots! There's also peacocks, ducks, roosters, chickens and a big lawn where you can sunbathe.”
“The Casino of Estoril is about 10 minutes walking from Cascais, and offers many forms of entertainment besides being a casino. Very nice restaurants (Mandarin - the best Chinese in Portugal), a lounge where many concerts take place (several of them completely free), Jezebel the nightclub (the only decent one in the area) and the gardens in front of the casino, beautiful place and where many events take place. ”
“A Pritzker-award winning Portuguese architecture! The building is unlike anything else in Cascais. Inside is a museum dedicated to one of Portugal's greater artists, Paula Rego.”
“If you go to Sintra, don't miss the chance to visit the westernmost point of mainland Europe, Cabo da Roca”
“The oldest museum in Cascais, operating in the former São Sebastião Tower, a stylistic wish-mash built by aristocrat Jorge O´Neill. Is located inside the Marechal Carmona Park, so you can see both in just one trip.”
