The Estoril Coast, also called the Portuguese Riviera, was transformed in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries from a series of sleepy fishing villages to a prime vacation spot for high-rolling world travelers and European nobility. The Estoril Coast is considered the wealthiest part of Portugal. Vacationers can be assured that they are staying in the same luxurious surroundings enjoyed by kings and queens, past and present, from all over the continent.
Cascais and Estoril were the first cities to be transformed, with the former being built at the request of a former King of Portugal, who made it his summer residence, and the latter growing in large part due to the success of Casino Estoril, which is the largest casino in Europe. The cities and towns to the east, Carcavelos, Oeiras, and Paco de Arcos thrived due to their location in close proximity to Cascais, Estoril, Sintra, and most importantly, the capital, Lisbon.
