Shopping in Cascais
Many traditional shops exist in the centre of Cascais, where a very friendly, personalised service is the order of the day.The opening hours are equally appealing, with the majority of shops staying open until 7pm and at the weekend most places are open for business on Saturday mornings.
Another must is a trip to Cascaishopping, a large shopping centre with restaurants and leisure areas. This is the best place for those who prefer doing all their shopping under one roof, with a number of restaurants, snack bars and cafés available as well as several cinemas showing films in their original language with subtitles in Portuguese.Cascais Villa is a smaller shopping centre located in the middle of Cascais next to the railway station.For those looking for stylish and decorative products, head for the Casa da Guia shopping gallery in Estrada do Guincho on the outskirts of Cascais.
Shopping is almost a professional pastime in Cascais, with plenty of money, old and new, in evidence. As you would expect from a leading beach resort, Cascais is home to many boutiques selling beachwear, sunglasses and accessories, some designer and some more mainstream. Away from the beach, the Rua da Raita is a pedestrianized walkway lined with shops of all description, perfect for finding those little gems to remind you of your holiday in Western Portugal. For more high street names and designer boutiques, eager shoppers flock to CascaisShopping on the road between Cascais and Sintra.
Very centrally located in Cascais next to the bus station, small and does not have a very large selection of shops. You will find a Pingo Doce supermarket here, which has extremely competitive prices but it does not carry a great variety of products. There is a small cinema complex aswell.
This is outside Cascais town center, in an area called Alcabideche. Lots of shops, Nike Women, Lacoste, Zara, Massimo Dutti, Area, Zara Home to name just a few. Pet shops, phone shops, key cutters, a pharmacy etc. The supermarket here is Continente - a bit cheaper than Jumbo perhaps, but does not carry the same variety of products. Large cinema complex here too (Lusomundo).
