October 10

Brunch at Taguspark Campus will be another perfect networking session.

Free time for sight-seeing and shopping in Cascais, followed by dinner in a beachfront restaurant.

Blame King Luís I (1838 – 1889) for the upturn in the fortunes of Cascais. He declared it his favourite summer destination back in the 19th Century and the rest, as they say, is history. Cascais (pronounced Cash-caiish) is a blend of royal palaces, fabulous food, and outstanding tourist facilities. It’s the place where stories of Ian Fleming and James Bond mix with unique 19th Century architecture.

Cascais, on the Estoril coast, is just 20km from Lisbon. Located between the picturesque Sintra mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the area also provides the most westerly point in Europe. There are 17 well-maintained beaches with amazing sea views.
