TWO-DAY PRE-TOUR: ATLANTIC COAST
Less than an hour from Lisbon lay the beaches of Cascais and the castles of Sintra.
Visit the Museum of Stories, designed by Pritzker Award winner Edouardo Souta de Moura and the Lighthouse Museum by top next-generation architects Atelier Aires Mateus.
Enjoy the sunshine and the sea as you stroll through the Arts District in Cascais. Sintra is a magical hillside town of Castles and winding cobblestone overlooking the sea.
Here Culture Viewfinder takes you to two outstanding residential houses by architects, one a modest idiosyncratic studio hideaway, the other, a gallery-like showcase for modern art.
Museums, castles, unique residences, sand and surf!
This is a two-day pre-tour option that could be added to your Portrait of a Cultural Renaissance: Portugal’s New Art, Architecture, Design and Food Tour.
