Pousada de Cascais History
The Citadel of Cascais and the Fortress of Nossa Senhora da Luz (Our Lady of Light) located within the Citadel, are part of the military forts built between the 15th and the 17th centuries to defend the coast and the entry to the Tejo River estuary. In 1488, King D. João II, commanded the construction of the fortified tower at the Salmondo Point due to the frequent incursions of British, French and Moorish pirates and the need to secure the defence of Lisbon. The Fort of Our Lady of Light with its triangular layout attests to the innovative ideas of the Italian military architects at the time, unprecedented in Portugal. Located in the Citadel Square, the Cistern with its arched ceiling and majestic presence, provides a unique and inspiring space for business meetings and events. From 1871 until the fall of the monarchy, the Citadel served as residence for the royal family. King D. Luis I died here. It was in Cascais that the royal family first acquired the habit of going to the beach. From henceforth, the nobles and prominent families built their palaces and stately mansions here, rapidly turning Cascais into a world famous resort, a true cosmopolitan area. After the proclamation of the Republic, the palace became dependent on the Presidency of the Republic and later became the official residence of President Oscar Carmona who lived here during most of his term in office.
