Travel around 30 km west of Lisbon on the A5, and you’ll reach the charming coastal town of Cascais.
The EPD Cool Jazz festival is held in the Hipódromo Manuel Possolo and the Parque Marechal Carmona.
It’s an easy drive from Lisbon or Lisbon Airport, and you also have the option of taking a bus or train.
Where to stay
Situated on the Estoril coast, west of Lisbon, Cascais is famous as a holiday destination and a day trip from the nation’s capital Lisbon.
If the word budget doesn’t cross your lips, then a stay at the fabulously luxurious The Albatroz Hotel might be the place for you!
The hotel is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, just a short stroll away from the beach, and there are spectacular sea views from all across the property.
But if you want gorgeousness and affordability all rolled into one, then check out the delightful Villa Vasco da Gama.
The backpacker option in Cascais is the Backpackers Hostel Portugal in the centre of town.
It offers dormitory accommodation with shared bathrooms and private double rooms.
