They call it the “Portuguese Riviera”: the stretch of coast west of Lisbon that was once the refuge of spies and exiled kings. This advertorial travel supplement, written by Chris Alden, introduces the Estoril region to Telegraph readers.
The supplement takes readers on a stroll along the mile-long bay that sweeps from Estoril to Cascais, where you’ll see sunbathers even in early spring.
It explores some of the history of the area, noting how Estoril’s Hotel Palacios was a hotbed of espionage during the Second World War.
Finally, it devotes a special section to Sintra, the World Heritage Site just five miles north of Estoril, where you can visit eccentric palaces, a Moorish castle and a Franciscan monastery.
