Set opposite the cidadela wall, to the west, at the edge of an appealing park space is another interesting museum, rather similar in many ways to British NT properties. Lots of dimly lit rooms full of the artefacts of their time - mainly 16th century...More

Free entry to this amazing place. It's totally worth it. Near the marina and lighthouse. Staffs were very knowledgeable and helpful. Surrounding park with birds for instance peacocks adds more to this attraction. Anyone who visits nearby, I would recommend this place.

Loved the architecture, decoration, and location of this house. A good size and set up to wander around quite freely as it is not crowded.

Full of beautiful/tasteful things from different periods and countries, this is another easy museum of Cascais. The cloister is a lovely place to sit on a hot day.

This house is opposite Casa De Santa Maria. It's another little gem and we spent a very pleasant couple of hours looking around. The decor is beautiful and very much as it was in it's day.

A visit to this house is not a bad way to spend an hour or so. The house is attractive, with a range of rooms open to the public for €3 per person. The rooms feature some interesting tiling and are generally well presented. The...More

On my week in Portugal, that was one of my favorite museums (and I visited quite a lot them). That's really nice villa, excellently renovated. It's reasonably sized, so it's big enough to; and on same time, you can pay attention to details. Highly recommend!

Hi, it is closed on Mondays and free on one day of the week but I can't remember which day. There is a sign outside the door which tells you. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
