Overview

Do like the locals do and escape the city for a day, venturing west to the historic Belm district and then to Cascais, the local's favourite seaside playground. Combining art, history, beaches and some of the most delicious food in Lisbon, there's nothing not to love about this experience! Take the tram to Belm, a beautiful area in the south west of the city which pays homage to Portugal's Age of Discovery and is where you can taste the original Pastis de Belm. Refuelled by these delicious sweet treats, spend the rest of the day like the Lisboetas do when they head to Cascais for the cooling Atlantic breezes, sandy beaches, great surf, eclectic art and delicious seafood!

Know More about this tour

Take a tram from the city centre to the district of Belm, a historic area which is packed with monuments and architecture from the 16th century Age of Discovery - you'll see the Torre de Belm, an ornate fortress which was built in 1551 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the imposing Padro dos Descobrimentos, or Monument to the Discoveries. Of course, no trip to Belm would be complete without the pilgrimage to the bakery where the iconic Pastis de Belm are still made using a secret and ancient recipe! Indulge in these sweet treats and taste the unique, cinnamon flavour that only the Belm pastry has in its custard tarts. 
Next, take the train to Cascais, which was once a sleepy fishing village and is now the favourite spot for Lisboetas who want to escape the city and enjoy the beautiful beaches and amazing surf. Enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the beach front restaurants, where you'll find exquisite, fresh seafood cooked in the traditional ways, and cool down with some local sangria, beer or soft drinks.
Before you relax on the beach or head up to the cliffs for views over the wild Atlantic, explore the village and visit the Casa das Histrias which is dedicated to the artist Paula Rego (the Museum of Stories), and 17th-century St. Sebastian Chapel Museum where you'll find an eclectic collection of beautiful Portuguese tiles, delicate china and sculptures.
