We walked by this museum one day but you could not go up into the lighthouse until 2:30, so we decided to come back the next day. This worked well and everything was open. We climbed the tower and enjoyed the views from the lighthouse...More

The lighthouse was good to go up and take in the view. You get a stunning shot of the sea and part of town. If you’re interested in the mechanics of lighthouses then the museum might be of interest however I found it quite boring...More

I was lucky in going to the top 9f the lighthouse as only open for one hour a day and open when I visited. One of the most photographed spots in Cascais. It offers great views over the marina and the neighbouring museum.

Can only score this a ‘4’ because we were not able to ascend the lighthouse which is only open at limited times. However the small museum is interesting and includes a film about the life of lighthouse keepers. The enormous lenses on display were interesting...More

The Casa de Santa Maria is really gorgeous, inside and out. It was empty except for me, which was a nice break from all the tourists. Really cool tiles and stunning views. I did not realize, though, that the lighthouse was not accessible on the...More

Paid 4 euros, to see the fancy house and lighthouse. The fancy house was nothing special really, looked better on the outside. The lighthouse museum was 3 small rooms with nothing really to it and takes about 10 minutes to go around. What makes matters...More
