Cascais is one of the Portuguese counties that has high motorisation rates and whose mobility is strongly based on motorised individual transport, which has generated an overload of infrastructure and a too great dependence on the car for traveling. This has contributed to the accentuation of the suburban characteristics of Cascais and to increased car traffic to Lisbon.

Recently the municipality of Cascais is implementing a set of innovative measures in the area of mobility at an accelerated pace and establishing itself as a hub of incubation and experimentation of new solutions. It actively encourages and participates in the debate on new mobility solutions at European level. And as the future is already tomorrow, politicians, technicians and citizens wonder how the urban mobility of the future will be? Will it be shared? Will it be Electric? Will it be interactive? Will it be digital and intelligent? Will it even be autonomous? Will we have new forms of mobility? What is the role of technologies in the transformation of cities?

AGAIN: the cities have been transforming due to the individual transportation and car. Now we must resize, retrofit and find new ways such as co-mobility, to have a pleasant city to live AGAIN.

 

CASCAIS - Where the Land Ends and the Sea Begins

Beach view of Cascais

Cascais has a 30 km coastline, including beaches of wild nature and other more urban ones, in a scenario of glamor that combines the blue of the Atlantic Ocean with the green of the Serra de Sintra

From the beach of Carcavelos (one of the first international surfing destinations) to the wild dunes of Guincho, a rugged coastline with steep and high cliffs, interspersed by the bay of Cascais and its welcoming beaches, bestow the coast a touch of glamor. 

The municipality also has lush green areas. The Parque Natural Sintra-Cascais presents itself as an irrefutable invitation to walks, as well as to all activities linked to ecotourism. 

The historic centre of Cascais is home to true architectural gems, such as the Cidadela, Casa de Santa Maria, one of the most emblematic works of the architect Raul Lino, the Museu Condes de Castro Guimarães, the Museu do Mar, Rei D. Carlos, the Casa das Histórias de Paula Rego, a museum projected by the architect Eduardo Souto Moura, awarded the Pritzker Prize, or the Farol – Museu de Santa Marta.
