Estoril Mini Guide

Estoril in a Nutshell
Estoril is a seaside resort, near to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. It used to be a fishing port but became a resort after World War II, when exiled dignitaries stayed there. It is a town of faded grandeur having once turned itself into a Portuguese Benidorm but is still a cosmopolitan playground for tourists. The authorities are trying to follow Benidorm's example and raise the status of the resort. This area was previously known as the Portuguese Riviera.
