Previously a fishing town, the fate of Cascais changed in 1870 when King D. Luís decided to turn the Cascais Citadel Palace into his summer home. After many years of abandonment, in 2004 the Museum of the Presidency of the Republic launched a restoration, and the palace is now used to house the President’s guests. Some of its rooms, splendidly recuperated, are open to the public: the main hall, the Arabic room and a stunning closed balcony, with a grand view of the Bay.
