I was with my family in Estoril, I don´t have a lot pictures from Portugal and the quality is a little bad because I didn´t have digital camera yet. This is a picture with my brother in famous Casino from Estoril.

Estoril is a seaside resort and civil parish of the Portuguese municipality of Cascais. The Estoril coast is close to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. It starts in Carcavelos, 15 kilometres from Lisbon, and stretches as far as Guincho.

The two main resort towns are Estoril and Cascais. Estoril has a famous casino, Casino Estoril. Estoril was the residence of Juan de Borbón, pretender to the Spanish throne during the last part of the 20th century.

The population of Estoril in 2001 was 23,769, its density is 2,702/km² and the area is 8.79 km².

The coat of arms are coloured blue a golden sun with five escutcheons one in the middle and one outside. The waves of grey and pine green lie to the bottom. The crown has three towers on the top.

There are remains of Roman mansions dating back around 2,000 years.

Estoril used to be a significant fishing port. Since the early 20th century it has been important mostly as a tourist destination. Miklós Horthy (†1957), the regent of Hungary, lived and died in exile in Estoril after the Second world war.
