  Portugal Golf - Estoril


Estoril Description

This town of Estoril was generated from the various needs of both two World Wars. Once a small Spa location conveniently located between Lisbon and Cascais, it became a prime location for European royal exiles forced to leave their own countries. It has been the residence of King Umberto II of Italy, Juan de Bourbon of Spain, Karl Hapsburg of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and King Carol of Rumania. The many modest yet architecturally interesting mansions still remain to indicate their royal owners. At its height its visitors referred to Estoril as the “Portuguese Riviera”. The Portuguese themselves were quick to appreciate this added attraction. A Casino with wide surrounding avenues and spacious gardens, a golf course, all of which soon appeared and then flanked by large hotels and impressive private homes. Today a motorway to Lisbon conveniently links the town but it still retains a strong glimpse of its former glory with its relaxed and gracious style.

In Monte Estoril there is a museum devoted to a collection of many musical instruments and related matter. Nearby is the Grutas de Alapraia, discovered in the late 19th Century containing relics from as far back as BC 3.000. Further to the east in the direction of Lisbon at Paço de Arcos is a museum with a well worth visiting with a formidable collection of Antique Cars. Nearby is yet another museum which was once a royal Gun Powder Factory dating back to the 18th Century. This location is now often used for popular musical events.
